Default Re: Typical TPS range ? - 2005 non-turbo - 210k mi

Booter2004 - Your info was definitely helpful…! ...Thanks very much for your reply…! Sounds like your diagnosis is spot on…
I have alot to learn about intake & exhaust cams & other sensors that affect engine operation & other systems.

I'm guessing that given the P0016, there’s no question that the PCM is seeing that the crank and cam/s are (truly?) out of phase, and that there isn't some other issue causing the P0016 like a wiring problem - etc. or I'd be getting other code-faults and poor engine performance & driveability issues... Yes ?

Also, I guess the cam sensor is monitoring the intake-cam if the exhaust cam is ~less consequential… True?

The big followup-question: If the cam sensor is monitoring the intake cam then if / when redoing the timing belt we should --at least-- make sure that the crank and the intake cam are on their proper belt teeth for-timing-alignment so at least they're in proper sync and wont throw the P0016…??

………………….……………..

Very Interesting that you mention vacuum…
Ever since and immediately after the timing belt change (30k mi ago) our cruise control wouldn't show up in the instrument panel and so no longer worked.

Well, (very recently) after doing some unrelated wiring repair and seeing and re-seating the cruise control connector at the servo I was able to get the cruise indicator to show up in the instrument panel, and I could even set and use the cruise control as intended when first starting out to drive (without a long warm-up)...

However, thereafter, as soon as the engine starts to warm up, the cruise control cruise indicator disappears from the instrument panel and disengages and cannot be “re-illuminated” until the car has cooled off from sitting.
Could this be due to the exhaust vacuum concerns you mentioned…?

Also. Too, do you think a vacuum issue, knock sensor, or the mis-timing is keeping the CAT or O2 drive cycles from completing..? It’s been about 500+ miles and I’ve tried to drive the drive cycles to no avail (though it’s also hard to drive with a steady throttle without a reliable cruise control)...?

(Thanks for sharing any further thoughts…)

Many needed repairs / worth it / kinda fun... includes control arm, steering rack & K-frame member {each at a different time-!} - self and with local friendly mechanic.

Most notable mod is installing an AirLift(tm) Kit inside the rear springs (for the Boat / trailer !)...
