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

One step closer…? We now know what isn't a problem… : )

A fellow Cruiser (with a 2007) with zero problems (scanner verified all drive cycles complete-green and no codes or engine lights) and their throttle/TPS has the exact same percent range as mine (14.5% to 75.4%).

So, we now have no idea what to think about the 85% throttle requirement for some drive cycles (maybe originally meant 85% engine load..?).

Wondering if the P0016 (or what else?) is keeping the CAT & O2 drive cycles from completing…Maybe for those-two cycles the “MIL off” is an absolute requirement since all my others have completed with the MIL on... Something else which may possibly be is that I replaced the downstream O2 sensor (OEM) a while ago & wonder if I need to do any special reset other than having the battery disconnected &-or clearing the codes with the handheld scanner...
Anyone with thoughts or insights on the timing & trouble code or O2 sensor replacement or etc affecting drive cycles please weigh in…? ...Thanks!

I guess the next step is to go ahead and check the timing belt & pulley positions, likely with a timing belt change (OEM) while everything is pretty much apart…
Hopefully, when done, the MIL for crank & cam timing misalignment will turn off (and allow passing-inspection?).

PS - last summer when the car had other wiring issues (& barely ran when air temperatures got extra hot in the summer heat) a shop did a scan & printout (attached) of the crank and cam position signals and said that it appeared the timing was about a half-or-more teeth off-spec and noted they weren’t sure though they had tried to look up the signals’ relative timing specs online but couldn't find much more at that time. [I fixed the many exposed wiring issues of the time & now the car runs quite well/as-a-daily-driver.]
If anyone with experience sees something pro or con in the attached signal traces, please feel free to comment…
We’re kind of at a loss on that at the moment …

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 !)...
