Default TPS Adjustment

Is there anyways to adjust the TPS sensor on the 5.9 engine? And if there is what is the correct adjustment and procedure?

The only way to adjust it is to put in a new one.

because of all the weird ways in which a bad tps can cause problems, the best thing to do is replace it.

but , there a way to elongate the holes and twist it a tad to adust the voltage.
somewhere out here...

This past weekend I was cleaning my throttle body and was too lazy to take out the sensors. Long story short, I dropped my TB ON MY TPS and cracked it. So I bought a new one from napa and I'll tell you, my truck feels a LOT more responsive in the 0-60 range. I honestly thought my TPS was fine before. Needless to say, I was wrong.

i replaced it awhile back but i just bolted it on, and i was reading in some thread about somebody saying to adjust it for better mileage and all that good stuff. I just wasn't sure if there was an actual adjustment or not. When i replaced mine i just bolted it in. I didn't know if that was the correct way to do it or not?

http://bionicdodge.com/Download/Speedtweaks Tips And Tricks.pdf

..... that is a PDF linked here:
http://dodgeforum.com/forum/2nd-gen-...e-ram-faq.html
under "Tips and tricks for Ram performance"

Around page 20 on the .pdf explains what you want. (TPS Modification, it's in the bookmarked index)

I adjusted mine to .699v without drilling out the bushings. The TPS moves a little if you just loosen the screws on it. BUT don't do it unless you know you can read the output properly on a meter.

Otherwise I'd agree to get a new one if it starts acting up. But once you place the new one, it's best to know how to place it properly.

Autozone part no. TPS333. Also rockauto.com, or you could look up the part number in the parts manual here in the FAQ/DIY section....

(that part number is for 1999 - since you don't list what you are driving...)
