Hey Guys I Dont Know If Anyone In Here Has A An Answer For Me But I Thought Its Worth The Try....i Recently Installed A Q45 Tb In My Car And Used The Trac Tps .....the Idle Is At 2k ....moving The Tps Sensor Doesnt Seem To Do A Thing To The Idle. That Shyt Is Hovering Around 2k Constantly.....during A Cold Start Its Lower But As The Car Warms Up The Idle Goes Up To 2k.....i Always Thought Playing Around With The Tps Sensor Would Cure This Problem...but Yesterday I Did That N I Was Very Disappointed....plz Advice.....

Thanks In Advance

Yogi

TPS has nothing to do with how high it idles. You're getting too much air into the engine. Butterfly may not be closed all the way or there is a bypass built into the throttle body allowing air around the butterfly. I've never messed with a Q45 TB so you'll have to take a look at.

I don't know too much about your setup so don't let me sidetrack you too much. :)

The only thing I can add to the post above is that maybe make an adjustment to your Idle Air Control Valve. Also, perhaps the Q45 throttle body has an IACV built in like the NA Supra does?

There should be an adjustment screw which will allow you to set the max close point of the TB.... find it and adjust it... your idle will drop. Then adjust your TPS if necessary.

I just looked at mine - it's a small screw to the right (if facing the front of the TB) - that is at the top right of the TB (near the mounting hole). If threads through the TB and acts as a stop.

Did you get the idle low enough, or is it now 1500!

I was the one that told you about removing the plunger device! The plunger heats up with coolant running thru it, causing the cold idle linkage to rotate and rest on the hot idle screw.

You need to remove the lower cold idle linkage or it will never make it to hot idle unless it gets really hot. The plunger itself doesnt need to be removed, but might as well. There are two screws mounting the linkage to mounts on the TB. Watch out when the spring comes off, it is strong!

You are running a stock ECU, correct? What kind of fuel setup - VPC? Did you have to add fuel at low RPM's to keep it from being too lean?

Thanks man!
