Your TPS is actually at the top of the "gas" pedal and it's been a known fault but I'm not sure if your symptoms are typical if that failure.

I would suspect it too, maybe you could give it a good look for corrosion at the connector or "wiggle" it while running????

I just had my tranny rebuilt (AUTO) and this is one of the reasons i had it done, this sympton. Thanks for the info, called tranny shop and he said TPS too! Sounds like something i can do.

I found what i think to be the problem, indeed the TPS or what NAPA calls APS, spring was sloppy on pedal so i had to order it and it came with the whole pedal, aps sensor and injector modual sensor i think its called all built in to one. When I get it i will post about the repair.
