    wierd thing this week ? TPS

    So i have had the gems unit un coded with lee at mitagong ,,, So no more stupid becm talk back lock outs ,,, Oh and a funny thing is i can now start the Rangie with a near flat battery , as long as it will crank it will fire up ,,,,, Thanks lee (Labtronics) .
    anyhow this week i have the TPS fault seems easy enough i just need to find one ,,,ANY IDEAS < please not EBAY <<<<<<< im over eBay so bad ,,

    Is there a parts place everyone recomends that will post parts ?

    Funny thing i checked the TPS with a multy meter and it seems fine ,(its just a potentiomiter )

    the Rangie sort of stutters at low revs I checked all the coils and found one with sone corosion in the lead conector

    Anyhow any help with a suplier.


    Thanks all
    Bob

    Sorry Bob, but advertising (wanted ad) isn't allowed in the forums. You have to use the markets. Your post has been edited.

    Re the coil pack, on the GEMS the coils aren't sold individually. You have to buy the whole coil pack.

    There is one in the Markets.

    You can borrow it to try it just in case yours isn't faulty.

    Have you given the MAF sensor a clean? Maybe try that one first, only cost is a can of MAF cleaner from Supercheap.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the offer i may do that ,,, Im after the TPS Throtle position sensor im getting a code o122 ,

    The coil is a funny one i think they are ok on had some corrosion in it i cleaned it with contact cleaner and seems ok ,,, all the coils have the same readings on the ohm meter (Primary seconary )

    first i will swap out the TPS and see if the stutter goes all contacts are clean so im hoping its just an easy fix would be great to have a spare to see as i have heard the wires crack to the TPS plug
    I could trace to the gems ecu but its to hot today and the nowra river festival is on and im hitting the water later ,,,,
    Oh anyone in the area there are great fireworks on tonight 9pm

    Sadly D2 is THOR not GEMS.

    You could try Mario on the forum (Roverlord Off Road Spares) or Triumph Rover Spares SA for a used one.

    Maybe its worth trying to adapt a Commodore V6 one, they're easy to find and apparently were sometimes adapted to the earlier 14CUX systems.
