Q: How do I know if my TPS needs adjustment?
A: If your TPS has been removed or replaced with a new one, it will need to be adjusted to factory spec. If your engine isn’t running properly and the reason isn’t obvious, your TPS may need adjustment.
Q: What effect does adjusting the TPS have?
A: Adjusting the TPS to a higher voltage will cause the engine to run richer (more fuel), and adjusting the TPS to a lower voltage will cause the engine to run leaner (less fuel).
Q: Can the engine be tuned by adjusting the TPS?
A: Yes, on most engines adjusting the TPS can be a viable way to fine tune the way it runs. If major changes are needed, it may be necessary to modify the fuel map in the engines ECU.
Q: If my engine has a carburetor, does adjusting the TPS make a difference?
A: On most carbureted engines, the TPS will only affect the timing. On a fuel injected engine, the TPS affects both timing and fueling. For this reason, adjusting the TPS on an engine with a carburetor typically does not give the significant change in performance that you would see when adjusting the TPS on a fuel injected engine.
