Any CEL's on? TPS comes to mind.


Yes, Bmark is right ,tps,or vacume line leak.


Ill check the vacuum line but the cel is not on and iv already changed the tps awhile ago. I cleaned the throttle body and changed alternator and the idle air control valve also. Is it possible the maf sensor. I keep putting money in it and nothing fixing it
