a TPS (throttle position sensor) long story, I have a 96 GLE with 41,000
miles on it. It was my grandma's car so it sat for long periods of time.
When I got this car the transmission was hesitating, if I was slowing to
just under 10 mph then hit the accel, it took about a second and a half
before I had any power to the wheels. I took it to a transmission shop and
they for the most part rebuilt the entire tranny, however the problems still
existed. I recently took it back because of this problem now they are saying
it is a TPS. 2 questions.
1) they said that they adjusted my TPS, is this an adjustable sensor
2) If it is could it cause the engine to idle rough I swear my idle rpm were
at 700 before I took it in now it fluxuates between 500 and 700 and the car
shakes at idle.
