Question WTF!!!! Anybody?

So, I'm sitting at a stop light, the engine has been running for 15-20 minutes on lite traffic roadway at 35- 40 MPH, no chip. The light turns green I step on the peddle and, nothing, just keeps idling at normal speed for 1 to 1 and a half second length of time then takes off like it should have when I stepped on the peddle. What's happening? anybody?

Could be many things. But I would lean toward throttle position sensor.

How do I check the TPS out? 12 volt tester or is it more complicated?

I believe you'd have to get it to fail or delay again to see it with a meter. Has the problem re-occured? If not, I'd just swap out the sensor see if it happens again, if not you fixed it, if it does return the sensor, or keep it for a spare.

I would try cleaning the two switches on the pedal assembly first before replacing anything
