the distributer has a lead to the ecm to tell the fuel injector when to open and close. the hall effect switch detects a load on the distributer i.e. acceloration. and adust the spark and fuel accordingly, normally if the service engine light doesnt read a code 21 and the spring in the tps is springing back into pos. then the tps is good.

But I bought the truck for $400.00 & put about $65.00 into it, with oil change,& $25.00 worth of gas.Runs & drives like a champ now. Thanx again for your input.
