Tiburon Its not possible for the TPS to affect the brakes on that I have no idea. As for the kicking and idle high are you sure the spark plug wires are in the correct locations. If its doing crazy things like you describe I don't even know where to begin

cfarlow89 I replaced the tps. Now the problem is worse. It's kicking more than it was, it's idling high, and my brakes are locked up. WTF!?!?

Tiburon I had a code for the TPS at first but next 3 were miss fire codes until I got the Mopar one.

cfarlow89 Ok thanks. I asked about the TPS to someone at the parts store, but they told me it would throw a different code other than cyl 6 misfire. I'll check into that again.

Tiburon I had a misfire code issue for a while too, with the jumping and skipping when accelerating. new plugs, wires, injector cleaner, all made it better but not go away. Then I changed the TPS (throttle position sensor) and that solved it, but only for a week, 3 bad aftermarket parts later I went and got the Mopar one at the dealer and 3 years later it still fine. Don't waste time and money like I did going to advance auto, car quest, and Napa only to find out all of them were made by the same company just in a different box.

Granted I have a 4 banger but the TPS is the same for both engines and causes the same issue when it fails.

Please help!

I've got a 99 Wrangler. It's an I6. The problem I cannot seem to solve is this- the check engine light has been on for a couple months reading a cyl 6 misfire. It wasn't affecting anything so I didn't bother with it, but just a couple days ago my jeep developed a strange symptom. When I accelerate, the engine cuts out and the jeep "pulls" or "jumps" fairly hard.

So far I've replaced everything that I could think would be causing the issue. It's got 169,900 miles, so it needed a tune up anyway. It has a new distributor, distributor cap, distributor wires, all new spark plugs, ignition coil, and cyl 6 fuel injector.

Please help!
