Hi guys,

weird problem. here goes, say I snap the throttle with quick stabs car stumbles and wants to die. no cel lights and problems. but say I slowly step on the gas it doesn't do that. weird problem. I didn't trouble shoot it yet but hopefully someone knows what it might be. I didn't try to reupload the cal yet.

i have this with my rsx seems to be a common thing atleast with the rsx so id assume it is with most k motors. if i quickly hit the throttle it will come back down to 500 rpms or so and then back to normal idle its normal my car has done it since i bought it

wow ic. so you are saying when you quickly press the throttle rpms go down instead of up? same problem I am having if I slowly press its fine but quickly hit it rpms go down lol.

that being said I didn't have the problem before will have to do some trouble shooting I will get back if I find the problem. some how sounds like a sensor problem....

thats weird...im saying i hit the throttle and rpms go up but when it comes back down it goes down to 500 rpms and feels like its going to die then returns to normal. If your problem is a sensor id guess tps since as far as i know the car will run like crap if at all if the map sensor is toast

I was reading up on some threads were the common factor was ""rdx injectors". I can't really remember what the topic was but I just thought I'd throw it out there

thats definately a TPS thats broken. I had the same problem with our race car. I accelerate the car and it bogs like it was out of timing. But im for sure its the tps. plus my cel never came on and when i put a new one shyt was working perfect again

you were exactly right lol. tps is 0% when car is running. I checked the wiring looks fine gets power etc..looks like tps is dead..
