You can pick a cheap one up at Home Depot for <$10. I tried with a digital volt/ohm meter and it does not work, it's got to be an analog meter.

ok cause the guy i got the car from said the TPS was bad but i pulled it off and used a ohm meter and it seemed to be working just fine but now im thinking it could be a dirty crank sensor or something

If you get an analog meter and do the test as outlined on stealth316 it will tell you exactly what the problem is. A meter is cheap...and crank angle sensor is not. Find out what is causing the CEL, then go from there. If you are unwilling to do at least that, well, good luck then.

what are the symptoms? Poor running, poor fuel economy? Won't start?

WalMart would probably have a cheap analog meter...hell, a test light might work, but I've never tried it.
