I would attribute it more likely to be a gummed up IAC passage in your TB rather than a TPS. TPS doesn't really come into play at idle with the butterfly closed.

Or some bad gas. The dinging was technically happening when the car stalled. I've had er "experience" with that one.

Find the Techinfo article on Throttle Body (TB) and MAF (mass airflow sensor) cleaning. It details removing the IAC (idle air controller) and the passage for it in the TB.

Didn't get a chance to work on this last night, installing my new rearview mirror took longer than exspected. I seen the article in tech info. Anyone have a part number for the throtle body gasket I will need? Also what kind of results do you see after performing the cleaning? Aside from not stalling.

Thanks,
Chris
