rwhitmore74 I have no other issue then the Tom's going up with clutch in. Other then that it seems just fine. Still think that's the problem?

BigGreenMachine You'll need a good #20 torx bit to get the two torx screws off. Make sure to depress the tab at the end of the wire harness connector after you slide the red tab back to get the connector off without breaking the lock tab that holds it on. It's best to do it with the hood all the way back to the windshield and when the engine isn't so hot.

BigGreenMachine Np. Hope it works. I had to replace mine three times before it stopped "chugging" down the highway. It drove like the gas peddle was getting tapped at random.

rwhitmore74 Any other thoughts out there?

Jerry Bransford You've likely got a vacuum leak, especially if the intake manifold has ever been off.

s3nt3nc3d I'm putting my bets on a faulty TPS sensor (throttle position sensor). Not 100% sure, but that's what I would change first if it were mine and I wanted to throw parts at it.

rwhitmore74 Foot off and braking when it happens. I even took floor mats out just in case. If I let clutch out (in gear) rpms go down. Then in have to give gas so I don't stall.

Drakea94 Foot still on the gas . Even a little ??

sometimes i put clutch in and engine goes up to 4000 rpms.

This only happens once a week. I hit the gas and it goes back to idle under 1000rpms. Why?
