Code #22 is the throttle position sensor signal is low. Code #44 - Left O2 sensor is indicating lean. DOesn;t mean either is faulty , just that they are detecting a problem.

Sounds like a bad connection at one or both of the sensors (TPS and/or O2). HTH. -Jim


so i tested the TPS and the closed throttle voltage was .2 and the full throttle voltage was 3.8, but no jump in dead i got to lookin at the sensor, and that arm that the throttle body pushes on was bent, so it was reading that the carb was way i bent it so it was lookin like it should and WALA, .5 and 4.5. i cleared the computer fault and the light hasnt come on all day...truck it running better it seems..smoother.. i dont know how it got bent, but it moves freely..ill just keep my eye on it..
