Here lately i have been having some problems with my throttle, there are times after i shift that i can put it all the way to the floor and it wont do anything or even change the idle. when it quits working my check engine light comes on, but when i push in my clutch the light goes off and occasionally itll start to work again. Everyone i talk to and including me think its the TPS. Is there somethin else that would cause this?

pull the codes to confirm it but it does sound like the tps. I don't think you can get the tps seperate, you have to buy the whole pedal assy. and it aint cheap. Probably not what you wanted to hear but it's the truth :shrug:
