Thank you sir! alot of the color is rattle can matching paint... it had bad peeling... So you think I could like a "spacer" of sorts in the TPS, essentialy turning it?? is 1.16 better than .74? its closer to 1 but I am wondering if its too high... Maybe I can get a thinner piece of material to take up the space and get the magical 1 number...

what you think??

haha...rattle can actually shows well in pictures...lol

But, as far as the spacer, I don't know if I would do that. I wouldn't want you to risk maybe damaging anything.

But, mine is right at .72, so, .74 is better than mine.

Best bet would probably be to hit the yard and try and find a truck with lower miles than yours and grab its TPS if you really want to find one closer to 1 volt.

What if you can only get .7 volts and then 1.7volts at full throttle?

How many miles does your truck have?

But, if 1.7 volts is the maximum at full throttle, I suspect your TPS may be bad. However, being yours is the new body style truck, I don't know if its different or not.

Whoops...I meant .7v and 3.7v at full throttle. Should I replace it? Or is it still good?

oh...okay...haha.

Thats fine. Between .5 and 1.5 at idle, and 3.5 and 4.5 at full throttle.

So, as long as your within that range, you're good.

Default TPS

The 3-wire Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is mounted on the throttle body and is connected to the throttle blade.

The TPS is a 3-wire variable resistor that provides the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) with an input signal (voltage) that represents the throttle blade position of the throttle body. The sensor is connected to the throttle blade shaft. As the position of the throttle blade changes, the resistance (output voltage) of the TPS changes.

The PCM supplies approximately 5 volts to the TPS. The TPS output voltage (input signal to the PCM) represents the throttle blade position. The PCM receives an input signal voltage from the TPS. This will vary in an approximate range of from 0.26 volts at minimum throttle opening (idle), to 4.49 volts at wide open throttle. Along with inputs from other sensors, the PCM uses the TPS input to determine current engine operating conditions. In response to engine operating conditions, the PCM will adjust fuel injector pulse width and ignition timing.

The PCM needs to identify the actions and position of the throttle blade at all times. This information is needed to assist in performing the following calculations:
  • Ignition timing advance
  • Fuel injection pulse-width
  • Idle (learned value or minimum TPS)
  • Off-idle (0.06 volt )
  • Wide Open Throttle (WOT) open loop (2.608 volts above learned idle voltage)
  • Deceleration fuel lean out
  • Fuel cutoff during cranking at WOT (2.608 volts above learned idle voltage)
  • A/C WOT cutoff (certain automatic transmissions only)
The above info is from alldata, But i have drilled out the metal retainers(be careful plastic gets hot as the sleaves spin from the drill bit catch and push out) and just put washers on the bolts and it idles @ 800-1000rpm @ 0.93v lowered it 0.74v and got a good idle @ 700-775rpm.

The next question that should be asked is if you disconnect the battery to refresh the ecu to learn again will this affect the adjustment.

From the manual I was reading, it said that the idle may not be correct and that it should fix itself after a few key cycles. So, unhooking the battery should work as well, I would think.

Thanks for the tip buddy. I've got a 2001 sport 1500 with the 5.9. 142,000kms, I'll give this a try and let you know how it goes.

Unhappy

Hey I tried out your tip and now i've got a check engine light. how did you get a reading with the voltmeter. I checked my chiltons and the only way I get any reading is from the electrical connector. and how were you able to twist the sensor without taking off the torx screws. I only loosened them and the tps barely moved. I was being delicate, not to sure what happened lol. some more info would be nice
