Ok, cool the Throttle Control Sensor is the one thats next to the maf and is under another sensor, the one that has a little arm and moves with the throttle cable right? So I checked the resistence on the sensor and the results are as follows:

Pin idle position WOT position

A&B 5.20 1.61
A&C 4.64 4.64
B&C 1.41 5.04

Thats with the scale of 10k
How did you find out it was that?
Can anyone check their resistance to see if there like mine? Thanks a lot

The way I figured out what it was was less scientific. I searched these forums and others and found a whole bunch of people who were having the same problem. They named that sensor, so I replaced it and everything started working.

Ok, changed tps and it worked good, the car felt a little more quicker, but when I thought it was ok finally, then it died, it does it very rarely, some days it doesn't even die, but the problem is still there, just not so offen, any other clues?

Default Same problem

I have a 95 SE with the same issue. When it is started for the first time of the day it is hesitant, but then drives okay for up to an hour or less. At first this would only happen once a month and is now so bad that I will not drive it more than 15 minutes. I read other forums and used their suggestions. I have replaced the fuel filter; cam sensor; crank sensor; fuel pump & strainer; all battery cables (even to the fuse panel was replaced) and going to get a coil pack today. It has proper fuel pressure and the pump works even when it won't restart. New Plugs; wires; PCV valve, water pump, t-start. All pressures and temp are perfact everytime it stalls
It has been place on a computer to look for codes-NONE. It even stalled while on the computer diagnostics and it showed NOTHING wrong. It is hard to beleive that it is a faulty computer, because it always starts cold, but will always fail once warmed up.

Love my car, but the GHOST is breaking me and wasting my free time.

Mine is almost the same thing too, except it starts bucking and wont let me go past 1/4 throttle but never dies....Turn off and turn back on...Good as new, for a few more mins, Then does it again.

Shorty, you have a code for an EGR, so at least in that regard, I don't believe your problem is related.
