Clean the throttle body. The throttle body plate and shaft may be carbon-ed up causing it to be a bit sticky. Use some carburetor cleaner to do this.

i have put a new one in and the problem is till there not as bad but still there

If you had just done this, you may need to just drive it for awhile for the computer to relearn the TPS on the throttle body.

changed it a week ago but so i have done about 150 mile but thanks any way will see how it goes
