    TPS and ICM Question

    Spent 30 mins with brake cleaner trying to find anything and again nothing. The idle is so erratic that I can't really tell if I'm hitting the spot or not. What about testing to see if there is power going to the IAC and the TPS? This car's got me beat.

    Yes, I saw this. But I sprayed that down with the starting fluid and it did nothing at all. Wouldn't it bog down when sprayed? I hit it pretty good with that stuff.. Although I did it on a cold motor, not when it was real hot..

    Yeah, I'm still sick and trying to do some things that I can handle. It's a mofo to be sick and out in 90* temps trying to do this stuff. LOL.. I still think if I gotta take the intake off I'm gonna do it on a car in the junkyard first. Just don't trust myself. LOL.. No, I don't have the video.

    Yes, the ones for the TB..

    TPS and ICM Question

    The IAC on the right in the pic looks like the one it has. I've had the car for 13 years and the intake has never been off. I put about 45K miles on the 133K total miles on it. First time the TB has been taken off in those 13 years. I had the car at a local shop and a smoke test showed smoke coming out both sides of the intake. Shop thinks the intake is cracked, but won't know for sure till they remove it. OK.. Now the one thing I didn't do was torque the bolts down. I don't have a torque wrench. But, they're on good and tight. I don't have access to a scan tool. Yes, replaced the IAC with correct one and with the o ring.

    No sir, the high idle has been there for months. Before and after removing the TB for cleaning. Gasket is also correct and put on correct. I made sure to be extra careful with the gasket when Rock mentioned he installed one of his the wrong way. Took pics and compared the new one to the original that I removed in two pieces. I probably should have removed the spacer and replaced the O Ring though. I'm gonna get a new can of brake cleaner and spray around the spacer again before I go back and remove the TB one more time. I'll go back and check more of the wiring and I'll check that return spring. I also changed the IAC and the TPS. Doesn't mean one or both are still bad. Wouldn't be the first time I got a new part that was bad. Also need to check if they're getting power. Probably need someone to tell me how to do that, too. LOL.. Let me ask you, you're saying an "IAC speed motor." is that the same as the "Idle Air Control Valve"? or is that another part? Thanks for the info!

    I've checked it a few times and it's always closed. After cleaning the TB and the plate/butterfly, that thing was spotless. It looked brand new. I used TB cleaner and a toothbrush. I've also done what you did, put the car in neutral and mashed the gas and that did nothing. In fact, if anything it made it go higher. Not sure about how to do that. It seems to be at the stop, but I'll re check. Don't know how to remove the cables. I'll check and see if there are any videos. Yes, I'm in very hot and sunny Florida. Yes, there is one other wire, a pink one, that is a little scraped up. Will fix that one too. I've gone over a lot of stuff, but will do it again. PVC is good and those hoses were replaced by the first shop that looked at it. I'll check the MAP. I checked the brake booster 90° plastic adapter and hose and even sprayed them with starting fluid. No real change of the idle. I can't get my fingers in there to check the anti backfire valve. But, I did spray it down with starting fluid and there was no difference in the idle. I did spray the starting fluid between the brake booster and the TB and I did notice the idle get higher in that area. Closer to the TB. I ran out of starting fluid though. I was thinking of removing the TB again and this time remove the spacer and replace that O Ring. I didn't take the spacer off the first time. Also, that's the one area where the smoke was coming out when they did the smoke test.

    With the car running, or off? I've already checked a few times with it off and it's closed.

    TPS and ICM Question

    How do I check? Car running with the MAF off? or remove the hose to MAF and look through the screen? I need just a little more directions on how to do things. LOL.. It seems like the linkage is closing. I also pulled up on the gas pedal to see if that does anything and it didn't. I still can't get these codes into my little brain. If they're B codes, why does the computer say IP2511? Just can't figure that poop out. It should just say B2511.. I guess that's just too easy.. LOL.. I don't know, I'm dumber than a box of rocks.. LOL..

    So, the check engine light is off. No more 1634 and no more check electrical system message. But, the high idle is still there. Current Codes: P2511 - P2515 - C0073 - PZ2255 Went for a quick ride. The idle is around 1800 when stopped at a light, and when I got home and put it in park it jumped to 3300. RrRrRrRrRrRrr

    Yeah, I have a soldering iron and solder. I just gotta find where I put the solder. Just looked in my toolbox and don't see it there. I'll ask my neighbor when he gets home.. Maybe he has some. If not I'll just do a twist on it just to see if it's working. I just discoed the battery so I'll try and do the splice before I hook it back up. Hopefully that was the problem. Thanks for all your help!

    I may need to add some wire to that unless I can reroute it to splice it. How about using a Butt Splice? Yes, the red one looks worn. Not sure if they've been chewed on though. There was some old black tape wrapped there. I had to scrape that off to see the other end of the green wire.

    And, I found this green wire broken or chewed apart.
