Hi, I've had my Tezza for about 6 weeks now, 00' manual RS200, 98 fuel, sparkies and oil just changed(5w-30) and I've cleaned the MAF and TB just for learning and what I'd hoped to be beneficial to the car. It was running fine before except:
-when in 1st gear at idle speed (800rpm) I give it gas and it lags for it feels like 2 seconds before it really picks up with a very subtle jerk
-aceelerates fine to 3.5k maybe 4k, then it feels very linear to 7k, cleaning MAF hasn't helped
-it takes a while to start, it's a bit worse now, didn't notice when I bought it
-after cleaning TB, the idle bounced around when I started it, 1.5k-2k constantly, so I reset the ecu but no luck, eventually I just drove it anyway and it settled down. It's got a high idle now at 1.2k. Need to get it down to pass emissions. I did not remove the TPS when I cleaned it, did so by spraying onto a rag and wiping the butterfly and TB walls, but I did give it a few sprays at the end, and I think I may have screwed up. I have code 41 now so that's TPS. Wanted to test the TPS but I didn't feel comfy sticking a paperclip in the back since the insulation looks quite thin and I wasn't sure it'd fit, so I stopped after testing the connector itself, which by the way reads 5.13v, not sure if I have a bad multimeter or if it's something else. I tried unplugging the TPS while running and it just stalled.
-extended cranking, bearable on first start of the day, embarassing when hot/warm but it does start on first turn of the key every time. I wanted to check fuel pressure but I don't know where I can do it since my gauge has 2 hoses to emulate a normal setup, so fuel hose goes to hose 1 with a metal fitting, and hose 2 replaces the fuel hose. I tried removing where it feeds to the fuel pulsation UFO but I'm guessing I need a tool for that? I read on another thread someone plugged their gauge at the end of the fuel rail, but I don't have that fitting, so I wanted to test it elsewhere, like at the dampener.
Well, my main priority would probably be to test and replace the TPS, Coolant temp sensor to see if it helps and if not I'd like to do a fuel pressure test, any help regarding how I can do it would be appreciated. Oh and again is the TPS available by itself or do I have to get the whole TB? Since on Toyodiy it only lists the TB.
Thanks again for all the help I can get
And sorry for the somewhat lengthy posthttps://youtu.be/pX0BCvHNgY8
extended cranking when hot
reads 5.13v , at the pin farthest to the right, saw some other Toyota TPS should read 5v on the other side of the connector
do i need a tool to remove the fuel hose?
