Re: PLEASE!!! Going Nuts, FREAKIN' NUTS!

Ok, so I look for the fuel pressure regulator on the rail, can't find it. I looked at autozone.com to see what it looks like, nothing resembles it.

Also, I have replaced the TPS.

Re: Can't Figure it out

It seems that when it gets warm, it runs better. And once it starts running better I re-connect the AIC and it seems ok, but just for a few miles or so, then I repeat the process.

Re: Can't Figure it out

Can you tell me where the TPS is? Is it the sensor that attaches to the side of the throttle body?
