    TPS spikes to 90%

    Here is the problem. 2005 CTS 3.6 lux. sport. During light acceleration between 40 - 50 mph I have a little stutter that is acting like a transmission slip. Had the transmission oil and filter changed today just to rule it out. I hooked up my android tablet with a blue-tooth adapter using the app. Torque and looked for codes, non found. I did notice that the throttle position (manifold & raw) is spiking to 90% for short periods of time. It only does this as stated above. I took apart the throttle position cover and tried to clean the contact pads with no change. The question is, is this a common indication of a bad TPS and do I need a new throttle body with TPS?
    Thanks Steve

    That definitely doesn't sound normal. I don't know if you can source just the TPS, or if you have to get the whole TB.

    No, the TPS is built into the throttle body. Just needed somebody that has seen this before and what was done to fix it. I found a new throttle body, OEM replacement, for $100 and might just replace it. The strange thing is I have no check engine light nor do I have any stored codes. If this was causing a studder you would think it would throw a code! I hate to just start throwing parts at it. The wife wants a new 2 door coupe, it might be time.
