Try cleaning and/or replacing the idle air control valve.

Try cleaning your mass air flow sensor and your intake air temp sensor.

The TPS is the throttle position sensor. It's located on the side of the throttle body. It has a small wiring harness attached to it. At idle, it should read .93-.97 Volts DC. I don't remember precisely which wires you check the voltage on though. I'm pretty sure if you do a search on the site for that adjustment, the answer is here somewhere. Adjusting it is very simple, all you do is loosen the two screws that hold the TPS to the throttle body and rotate the TPS until you get the desired voltage. If you need to rotate it more than the existing screw holes will allow, just use a drill and elongate them slightly so you can adjust it a little more.

If you've replaced the OEM throttle body then a new TPS may not fix your problem. But if you want to waste $30 be my guest.

Changing a part that isn't broken, simply out of adjustment, is not going to solve your problem.

Above and beyond being a waste of $$ .

Thats True Money But. But Paperchan365 Said That It Worked For Him. I Dont Mind Changing It .. See What I Dont Understand On My Mustang You Cant Adjust The Tps . It Didnt Cost Me Much It Was Only 30 Bucks That Was The Only Thing Was Left For Me To Change Was The Tps I Canged The Air Conrol Vaule , Mass Air Flow Senor And Now The Tps Which I Changed Today. Only Time Will Tell If Its Going To Work Or Not .. Hopefully It Works So I Can Be Done Over That Idle Crap .. See My Posting In Like 1 Day And Will See If Did Work Or Not If It Was Worth The 30 Bucks That I Put In.. Thanks

But you can adjust the TPS, I told you how to do it in an earlier reply. If the original wasn't sending the correct voltage because it wasn't set properly, don't expect a new one to fix the problem.
