Default TPS Failiure

Today as I was driving to Checker the car kept holding the gears again until I would let off. I got to Checker and rechecked the codes and pulled the same as yesterday. When I attempted to leave the lot, within 2 sec of touching the gas it would die. Put it in park and restart all normal. Idle is normal at this point. Try to pull away, quits. After 4 times I realize it ain't going anywhere. I go to work and come back to see if it moves. It did go from one end of the lot to the other when the engine was cold. I put it in park to shut it off and the revs went up to 2500 at idle in park.

The saw did just barely nick the housing for the wires that go to these 3 sensors. It doesn't seem like it went through to the wires though.

well my car did the same thing, it always went to 2000-2500 when cold...and would hold gears...yep..replace that TPS...its kind of a pind, but not hard as long as you have small hands...that was my downfall...hah. But if it is stalling when you try to move, thet might be your MAF sensor.. Is there anything you might have done or something that might have happened to it before this all started? But it is definitely something to do with the TPS, but there is something else if it is stalling.

Yup, it had to be done. But now it looks like harm may have been done.

Default saw

If the saw cut the lines you need more than a TPS. You need to repair them.

A saw is not an appropriate tool for removing vac lines...
