    Sorry, should have done an intro before I jumped into it. My fifth Toy - 2 FJ 40's, 1 SR 5, 1 Tacoma. This my first Tundra, 2000 Limited, Totally stock. Edited.

    Can some one point me to TPS replacement discussions? I have an intermittent check engine light. I had a complete diagnostic done along with having the TB cleaned. Clean bill of health. Tech said was pointing to TPS but thought a good cleaning should do the trick, didn't. Light comes on at start, then drops after 3 or so starts usually. No throttle or idle issues, just the bothersome light.
    I have a 2000 4.7, thanks for any input.

    Thanks, I probably could have done for myself had I read the welcome page a bit better.

    Welcome from CO. I prefer USA "made" salt from Utah. Non iodized of course. Pics of truck please.

    @LOTSOFTOYS our resident Toyota mechanic may be able to help narrow it down.

    Welcome from NW Arkansas! We lived in Salt Lake in the early 80's.... Nice, clean city! If you want salt just drive a little West of SLC :rolleyes:; used to see a bunch of it when on our way to Windover to lose a few bucks at the casino.

    Tpms is different from tps. I believe the op is talking throttle position?

    If u could take a picture of the throttle body that'd help me know which one u have...

    Can do, won't be until later though tonight, or in the morning with better light. Was told there seem to be a variation in the signal from the throttle position sensor. Thought possibly a dirty connection, hence the cleaning. Thanks.

    I believe it was accelerator position. I'm not certain to be honest I had my local mechanic put code reader on it before I took it to a proper tech. He showed me how the signal was changing when you hit the accelerator pedal, only enough for him to think a good cleaning under the throttle body cover. I know that doesn't really answer your question though. Might have to to have it read again so as not to waste anyone's time here.
