My 1993 Suburban was having stalling problems and I was able to trouble shoot the IAC valve as the cause. I also changed the TPS with the BWD aftermarket part and the truck runs great. I will have to see how well these parts hold up but they all appear to be well made.

                                  Happy to help you with your question Rick! Is it possible for the TPS to affect transmission shifting. When you go wide open throttle the TPS tells the ECM it needs more power and gets the transmission to go into a lower gear to get more power. Another suggestion could be you’re over drive solenoid failing. You can also check your fluid, if there are a lot of metal flakes in the fluid you may have an internal transmission part failing. A certified mechanic would be able to diagnose this.

                                  Hi Mark, my answer to your question on the BWD Throttle Position Sensor - part# EC3310P is that the fit and function remains the same for both part# EC3310 and part# EC3310P. The only difference is part# EC3310 is an exact O.E (Original Equipment) replacement while part# EC3310P matches the original, designed with the professional installer in mind. P-Series product competes with the OE and dealerships.

                                7.4L 454 TBI running rich puts out alot of carbon idles not good, changed plugs, cap/rotor, coil, temp sensor, module, IAC, down to Map sensor or TPS??? Probably go ahead and change both today but if I still have an issue where should I look from there, spray pattern seems good from injectors just not burning fuel properly.

                                  With reference to your inquiry on the BWD Throttle Position Sensor - part# EC3310P, the throttle position sensor may be the possible cause of the problem on your vehicle. However, without the presence of the vehicle we could neither diagnose the problem nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest you to get assistance from a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem. For any further assistance, you may also visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

                                  Unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                                  Have you tried the MAP sensor? One way i have cured this is: Turn key OFF for 30 seconds. Push accelerator COMPLETELY to floor, hold it there. Turn key on, but do NOT start. Continue holding to floor for 30 seconds. Let foot off. Turn key off. Then try to start.

                                  The TPS is located right on top of engine, next to fuel injector or carburetor, on passenger side. Usually has a wiring harness coming off the top if it.

                                  The throttle position sensor should be the problem. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                                  With out the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it. We would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis.
