    First. I know there are many threads regarding this topic. Unfortunately they are all either resolved by "clean the throttle body" or are simply unresolved. Squeaky clean throttle body here, so hear me out. The car is an unmodified, 2005 v6 manual mustang, with only a few of components...

    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...

    Ok, I have been chasing the dreadful idle demon that shows up on my 89' 5.0 from time to time. I have read and google about every article thats out there.. I changed my IAC, with hardly any change. I cleaned MAF , reset the base idle , adjusted idle screw at the throttle. My problem is when I...

    I read through several threads here over the last few days trying to fix my idle issue and finally think I got it. I want to pay it back by listing what happened and how it (seems to) have been fixed. I'm not terribly knowledgeable about mustangs, in fact my truck is a 73 toyota FJ40 with a 92...

    well my mustang was running like crap one day, all of a sudden, so i changed the plugs, wires, filters, cleaned maf and checked batt terms. the usual stuff. when i couldn't figure out why she was having low rpm hesitation, backfiring, misfiring, bogging down and dying out at lights i went out...

    Loaded a bama tune and the results were: p2104 p2112... i do have an after market throttle body. This is the second time this exact same thing has happened with this tuner. Has anyone had this problem or know how to fix it? tps and motor are new, strictly the tune that did something to the pcm...
  7. 2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Hey guys.. I have a 2010 ford mustang GT 3 valves. I changed the throttle body for an aftermarket one but they never measured the tps.. Now i have the following problem.. The throttle body does not open, it stays kind of stuck. I went online and it says the tps voltage is from 1.19 to 1.30, i...

    My car (1994 mustang 3.8l) has a rough idle and no power until about ~2200 rpm. I already cleaned the MAF and IAT, replaced the fuel filter (whoever owned the car previously had the fuel filter on backwards), checked the spark plugs and plug wires, and cleaned the throttle body. I was viewing...

    I hope im posting this in the right place, im new and dont really know what im doing. Ok well, my mustang has been running very rough for a while now. It almost sounds like it has a cam in it at the idle. It sounds like its misfiring, but no code is being thrown, i do have a P0161 being thrown...

    Hi, I have a 1993 Ford Mustang GT 5.0L. After I cleaned the throttle body with throttle body cleaner, the idle started running 1000-2000 RPMS up and down. After this started happening I did a tune up changing the spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, and the rotor. Also I changed the idle air...

    I am in the beginning stages of my first project car, a 1989 Mustang GT Convertible. I have had a lot of fun times so far. This is not one of those times. My mechanical ability at this point is somewhat limited, so excuse me if I contradict myself or otherwise talk out my butt. :winks I have...

    The weather in my neck of the woods is going to be about a perfect 72° this week, so of course the convertible is acting up. Forgive me if this sounds painfully familiar, but "the car surges and tries to die at the idle position when slowing down or stopped." Admittedly, I am a TERRIBLE...

    I just had my check engine light come on and read it as p0122. I went to replace the Throttle Position Sensor and realized the wire was cut about an inch below the plug. Can I just repair the wires and hows best? Or can i order and replace the wire? I searched and couldn't find anywhere. Is the...

    So I was setting my Tps. Couldnt get it bellow 105. I had another on a extra intake manifold in my shed. So I swapped it. Set it to 96. But when I start the car it jumps up to 105 - 108 and jumps all around. Some times hitting a low of 44. The idle has changed between the two tps's I have a bad...

    Okay this is going to sound stupid but my old digital meter **** the bed. So I bought a cheap one a innova 3300. This is my 2nd one. The first one was a digi and it didnt have any settings. This one has so many settings I dont know which way is up. So the setting for the job would be 20...

    Hi all, I've done some searching but haven't found any other solution other than replacing the TPS -- which I've already done with a Ford replacement. My wrench light keeps coming on only when its snowing! I don't get it. It happens even when snow begins to fall, not necessarily even snow on...

    Hi everybody! New to the site and need advice. I cleaned the throttle body and MAF today as well as replace spark plugs (Bosch 4012's). The car runs perfectly except that it holds high idle at about 15-1600 rpms then drops down to normal after 25 - 30 seconds, it does this every time you rev it...

    Hello and merry x-mas to all. I have been reading some stuff on here and I must say it has brought me also close to fixing my Idle / acceleration issue. Here is my problem. I bought the car with 79,000 miles on it. I have replaced the tps, plugs, wires, cap rotor, fuel filter, egr silinoid...
