To adjust the TPS --
--Buy a T25 tamper-proof torx bit
--Warm the engine
--Raise the tank
--Find the TPS just above the throttle on the rear throttle body (round gizmo with two wires)
--Loosen and lightly retighten the T25 screws (2 up to 2006; 1 after that).
--Put the jumper wire in the diagnostic connector red/white & black/white connections (someone hurry and correct me if I'm wrong)
--Start the engine (previously warmed)
--Note the display. On the clock line you'll have --C00. Or maybe the "--" is low or high.
--Open the throttle until you're holding about 1500 rpm.
--Move the TPS as little as you can against its loosened screws so the "--" marks just go high.
--Tighten the T25 screws. Idle, speed up slightly, and note the change rpm. Adjust as needed.
--Double check the tightened T25 screws. Remove the jumper wire. Put everything back together.
