Car stalls when I take my foot off the gas! I can't seem to figure this one out
Posted 29 August 2010 - 03:50 PM
I first noticed it about a month ago. I did a MAP sensor "whack," changed the spark plugs and checked for any air leaks. It fixed the problem for about two weeks. The problem came back, and then I threw a p1129 code. I then took the MAP sensor off, cleaned it, reset the ECU and cleared the code with my scanner. The problem went away for about three days, then came back again, only this time, no p1129 code. So yesterday, I replaced my MAP sensor with a new one, took my intake off (I just have a K&N short ram) cleaned it and put everything back on, reset the ECU. The problem didn't even bother going away this time. Also, I threw a random p2279 code. I've checked everywhere for any air leaks, and I don't see/hear any. I just cleared the code, let it idle, and the code hasn't come back. But the darn problem is STILL there.
Any ideas? I don't know what to check next. At the moment, I am not throwing any codes, but the problem hasn't gone away either.

I bet its your TPS. If i could id try to fix my problem now, i just dont have the 800$ to buy a new TB and i dont want to modify a integra tps on my throttle body, im a bit of a perfectionist..

Also, is there a way to check the tps to see if that's the issue without replacing the entire throttle body?
I went to honda because mine got real bad, they hooked it up to there computer and told me its reading half of what the tps sensor is suppost to be reading( i forgot the numbers, i think its 5.0 ohms? I could be wrong. but mine was half of that), which usually means your tps is going bad(says honda). Now there is a thread on how to test the it, and also a thread on how to replace it without replacing the entire TB(i personally dont trust the diy thread on replacing it, but alot of ppl have done it and have had great success).
