    My new to me 1990 5.0 LX 5 speed is having a few issues, mostly with idling. I dumped the codes, and got several. As I work through the problems, I've got code 23: TPS out of range. When I check / try to set the voltage, I'm getting 4.92 volts at idle (ignition on, engine off). The tps that came...

The check engine was off for a little bit, but when i went halfway down the...
