Ok guys, i have searched for i dont know how long and a lot of posts have somethings similar to my problems but not quite the same!!

Alright, first off i can't start her without spraying starting fluid into the intake manifold, then she starts up just fine and runs good. Oh and that is cold and warmed up.

Also, after she is running for a few min she jumps up to between 1800 and 2500 rpms and stays there, cant get it to drop???

Any suggestions?

If its not your TPS then it sounds like you have a vacuum leak somewhere. Take a can of carb cleaner, when your RPM's are at the 1800 - 2500 range and start to spray it around your intake manifold, vacuum lines and see if the idle will come down. If you hit a spot where you have a leak, then the engine will slow down. If it does then you have discover a problem that needs to be addressed. Hope this helps.

Idle control motor?
Idle air control (motor) Its a little solinoid mounted on the side of the trottle body that controls the idle of the motor.

If it went bad, it can cause a no idle/crappy idle.

From the codes you pulled, I would almost definatly say it is the TPS, but its your money. Dunno what one costs either.

ok, i changed the TPS and the check engine light in on now, it wasnt before. Its a brand new TPS.
I pulled the codes and got
KOEO code
63- TPS circuit has intermittently failed below minimum 0.6 volts.

I dont know what this means???
Is the TPS that i got bad or somethin??
I tried to reset the computer and it came back.
The engine is runnin 10 times better and it dosent idle hi after it warms up. It doesnt need starting fluid to start now either.
So all my problems are fixed but the check engine light is on now???
Any suggestions?

I think you may have to "set" the new TPS for it to clear the code, but I am unsure, might take a look in the haynes for that endge.

What's your new TPS reading at closed throttle? Should be just under 1.0v. It's not that critical on the later EEC-IV's, but I figure it can't hurt to have it right around .90-.98v. That was an old trick from the mustang guys that supposedly gave better throttle response.

Where'd you get the TPS from... and did it have the elongated holes, or just standard holes?
