Can someone identify this part for me?

http://eper.fiatforum.com/navi?DRW_N...D=1&GUI_LANG=3

It's the sensor (number 2), what is it for?

Re: Can someone identify this part for me?

Think I am right in saying you would see weird throttle response and possibly unstable revs.

I think this sensor affects how much fuel is introduced to the engine as the throttle opens to bring in air.

I had to have a play around with mine when I connected up nos so it knows how open your throttle is before adding in the n2o.

Tom may have a better explanation.

Cheers,

Dan

My revs are not stable at the moment...could it be this? Would it more likely be the ICV?

At idle? The TPS is only used when you move the throttle, ie open or close it. At steady state it does nothing.

Yeh at idle, think it could be the idle control valve then?

I've got a new TPS sitting here, is it worth me fitting it to see if it makes any difference?

BMC CDA Induction Kit, Supersprint Manifold, De-cat and catback exhaust system, Dastek Unchipped, nothing major, C&B cams are sitting infront of me now waiting to go in...

It does get driven hard admittedly.

Sometimes when it first gets started in the morning alot of white smoke poures out of the exhaust until it's warmed up, it's definately more than condensation...what do you think it could be?

The white and disappears very quickly is water, if its blue and hangs around its oil.

How unstable are the revs?

It shouldnt be burning water tho should it...what's causing that?

The revs jump up a couple of hundred rpm every 5 seconds or so from idle...

it wont be burning water. for every gallon of fuel u produce a gallon of water like substance which will either be liquid or as steam (white smoke)

Could be your dastek is playing up.

Burning anything with hydrogen in it makes LOTS of water. Its not condensation.

But it doesn't disperse quick enough to be water...it hangs around when it comes outta the exhaust, after a while it stops once the cars warmed up a bit...head gasket maybe?
