have your diagnostics read at an auto parts store or access your own built in OBD...check the manual...it is a series of flashes...or if it has an OBD-II connector you can read them yourself...right now...shootin' from the hip am going to condemn your EGR valve for being stuck open~

the TPS can be reporting confused...mixed signals to your ECU so these contradictory signals can confuse the operation~
