Yes, felt like i had a hole in my map, just miss fired bucked and jerked. At a certain position of the throttle it would just wig out and then act fine before or after that point. I checked mine with my volt meter (1) Signal to ground 1v-5v and Sensor power to signal (OHMS). It was pretty easy to tell for me as my volt meter would act a fool with erratic readings when it hit the bad spot in the sensor. It should just increase and decrease Voltage and resistance steadily.
I detect a sort of stuttering at a certain throttle position. Putting the auto tranny in "Sport" mode helps bypass that position, but I also notice that if I brake hard at a stop, the engine conks out. This rarely happens but I suspect the TPS is at fault.
Where did you buy yours - the dealership? Is it a simple swap and is it expensive?
Okay, I found that at Rock Auto, a Standard = $41.79, a Beck/Arnly = $63.79, and an Airtex/Wells = $76.79
It looks fairly simple to install but I'll check with my service manual to see how to test and install if necessary.
