    TPS - 1996 Deville

    I have had hesitation, performance, hard starts and MPG issues with my 96 Deville, I have replaced the MAF sensor/casing, O2 sensors, cleaned the throttle body, used injector cleaner and fuel treatment. I have also replaced the EGR, crank shaft sensors and radiator recently. The plugs and wires are a little over a year old.
    While cleaning the throttle I removed the TPS and the hard start disappeared. I went for a test drive and the car had increased performance but not up to par and still the hesitation. When I returned I thought I would try removing the TPS and see what happened, I had no hesitation and increased performance but MPG was still down.
    What should my next step be, I am almost convinced just to leave off the TPS and deal with the MPG.

    Re: Tps

    It's truly ashame, but every Cadillac owner learns this very hard lesson. First step, pull codes and never through money at a Cadillac ! My father, who has owned Cadillacs since I was a kid, thought you work on this like it was a '64 Chevy, he learned the hard way, knowledge is the key to saving money, your sanity and your car! BTW, those TPS do go bad and will make your car run terrible ! I'm curious what you learned, so please let us know! I'm a graduate of the School of Hard Cadillac Knocks !

    Have you checked for a leaky FPR?
