Surging Question

I have went through the steps of taking the cables loose and resetting the sensor. It works good for maybe a week then I have to do it again. My question is could I just buy a new one and install it to fix the problem or is it triggered by something else. it gets old after a while. Thanks for all the great help you gys always come through with.

sorry about the info, yes I was speaking of the throttle positioning sensor. I take the battery cables off and let it set for hours and go through the rest of the steps. It cures the problem for maybe 2 weeks at a time before reoccurring. The transmission is in good shape and works great when this is not going on. What I was wanting to know was if I just replace the sensor instead of resetting it would that cure the problem or is there something else that causes thisa to happen so much. Thanks again for all the help

It might fix it but it could also be noisy wiring also so i would recomend trying the capacitor first cause if you replace that tps or apps then you still have to set it with a digital volt meter1:Thumbup:

I talked to a diesel shop about repairing this surging and he said he could install a noise filter for 110.00 that would correct the problem. Honestly guys I think I can do that myself only thing is I'm not sure exactly what part it is I need to install. Any help on that would be appreciated. Thanks for all the responses all you guys at diesel garage rock.
