    Hi Guys,

    Im presently battling a stalling issue and part of my troubleshooting has led me to buying a new TPS and I need to understand how to set it in conjunction with the Idle Control Screw and Pedal Position Sensor.

    I have read posts here, here and here and I reckon i'm starting to confuse my self good and proper.

    Right now i'm not entirely sure what i'm to do as far as placement of the feeler gauge, what measurements to check and monitor on the TPS and PPS or hell even just setting the ICS.

    Have any of you blokes dealt with this shite and able to offer some guidance with the usual disclaimers :)

    I guess the complication here is it's a TCL auto meaning it's got the other sensor (PPS), and from what I read that changes shit a bit.

    Particularly you guys who seem to know or have dealt with it a bit,
    @VOLK @Dice @naughtika @TME_Steve

    Also Steve I'll likely be sending you that ECU this week.

    Cheers everyone

    So by combining info from this post, this post & this thread and I think I got it set. However i'm wondering what impact a flat spot on the other TPS (PPS) would have? I haven't yet tested it as my multimeter is not cable pulled through but when testing my old TPS it seemed quite fine.

    I have now also pulled out the IACV to give that a clean to rule that out too.

    You should start with the TPS and IPS adjustment first. Main difference for auto tcl is that the feeler gauge size is different per the workshop manual as mentioned in the club vr4 page. Don't change SASS and leave the BISS until after you set TPS/IPS, often it can be left unchanged.

    Yeah I'm fairly certain I got it all set. Set the TPS and the "other" TPS (is that what you referred to as the IPS? Which I thought was a PPS?) After setting those I had no need to mess with the SAS, just needed to use the BISS to bring the idle down.

    Still just need to test for flat spots on the other TPS

    To clarify, the IPS (idle position switch) should show continuity at a certain point - need to refer to the manual pages.
