well idk forsure but I'm going to check it out tonight but I did not have any cel until I removed the old tps and put the new one in so as of now I'm assuming its cel#7 for tps but I will check it tonight after I get home and I'll post what it gives me.

Re: please help asap tps problem!!!

talright so just checked t.hee cel light it its definitely the tps 7 quick blinks. so if I messed up installation and didn't get the tang where it needed to be would cause the problems that I am getting. I knew a bad tps could cause bad gas mileage but could it cause that amount of a drop if o installed it wrog enless my throttle is now always wide open maybe?

Re: please help asap tps problem!!!

alright so fixed my cel I reinstalled tps and calibrated it myself, cel is now off. new issue is I still am getting terrible gas mileage. if anyone has any ideas or input please post them. I'm now getting a cruising speed issue as I speed up and shift hears I'm getting no problem but as soon as I stay cruising at a stable speed it feels like there is bubbles combusting and those continues until I hit the gas again
