The oxygen sensor is usually the first thing I would check if the car is running rich.

Yea, the TPS just reads throttle position. No air or fuel.

Could be a bad 02 sensor causing it to run rich. TPS at Autozone is about $48. If it is just running rich, I would suspect a bad 02 sensor. You can test the TPS with an ohm/volt meter to see if it is bad.

I recently replaced my o2 so I know it isnt that. My car smells like its leaking gas but it isnt... I had my fuel system pressure tested and it is all good. My coils are good my FPR isnt leaking I have new plugs and wires(no misses). What could it be? I am lost. All I know is my TPS is bad and is making my throttle irratic.

It wouldn't hurt to change it. See what happens.

Does the exhaust smell or is the smell by the engine?
