High RPM (I think)

Hi All. I am not sure if this is "normal" or not. '93 Automatic sometimes jeep feels like it wants to take off. I switched to k&n filter and feels a lot better but this is what I notice. If I am driving and put transmission in neutral the rpm go up to 1500 and will not drop until vehicle stops completely. When in drive I hear a down shifting sound and feels like the jeep would start to accelerate if I did not have my foot on the brake. I have cleaned the throttle and sensor that was dirty but don't know if I am waisting my time or not.

I believe it is the TPS that may be bad. Throttle Position Sensor. Located on the intake, cost about $50.00.

You could try pulling and cleaning it first.

Does not sound normal to me if the idle stays high.

In an Automatic it will not go to an idle until you are stopped. As long as you are moving it will keep the RPM up some. Every fuel injected vehicle I have ever had does that

So I just learned how to see the codes by turning jeep off and on. I take it that I can have an error even without the check engine light being on.

Yes things can still fail within parameters.

Wonderful Siva. Codes were 12 21 24 21 55. 12 makes sense. Don't know why 21 happened twice. And 24 is tps. I can purchase that for 20.00 at crown so i will pick one up tomorrow. Then retest I take it.

Reset the memory by disconnecting the battery. Drive it until it warms up and recheck the codes

Miscount maybe. Seen it double up codes before but no big deal. See what it says after you redo it.

New tps fixed it. Reset the computer and the rpm went from 1500 down to 1000 while moving. 800 in park and at a stop tach went all the way down to the little dash just above the 0. Doesn't feel like it is taking off at all anymore. Thanks for your help!

Since resetting the computer the o2 sensor shows normal. Dies than mean I don't need to replace?

The TPS with throw off the cal and dump too much fuel and set the O2 code. No need to replace it.
