Ok I cleaned the TB and the screen along with the MAF and replaced the gasket. The car runs better but u need to adjust my TPS. I bought a manual but I am having trouble figuring out what I am adjusting. On that note, since mine is adjustable (92) do i need to buy anything?

Thanks,
Chris

I know that and I have read where I am supposed to test but mine I guess is adjustable because it is a 92, so HOW do I adjust it?

In your case Chris..your adjustment is already part of the sensor. No need to drill or use washers. You only need the adjustment part using the voltmeter.
