This may be a silly question, but does the 04 F-6 EFI have a throttle position sensor? And if so can I disconnect it to see if it helps my intermitent throttle problem? Where is it located? Is it on the side of the throttle body?

The TPS is on the right side of the throttle body. I don't know why you would disconnect it though? It is an important part of the EFI systems and tell the fuel system how much fuel to put in given the throttle position. I'm not even sure it will run right at all without it plugged in but I guess I haven't tried.

Are you confusing the TPS with the TORS - throttle override switch?

When I nail the throttle from a dead stop, it acts like someone hits the kill switch. And occassionally at speed it will hiccup. The clutch engages at about 3800 and it idles at 1750-1800. If you stab the gas from a roll it acts a little better. Dealer said it could be the TPS, so I thought I would check. Any input is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You might need the TPS adjusted. To adjust it, you loosen the 2 screws and it rotates.....clockwise leans it out more and counterclockwise richens it up. VERY minor adjustments are needed....make minute adjustments per test until you get it. First mark the stock position so you can go back if needed. Most people put a small punch mark on the TPS and the throttle assem to mark the home position.

A lot of people mistake the hesitation as a rich stall when in fact it may be a lean stall. Don't get it into your head that the only thing it can be is running rich....that may be the case, but try both ways to see what helps.
