I'm not sure what you mean when you say TPS percentage. When you say TPS I think Tire Pressure System. Can you elaborate? Throttle Position Sensor?

FWIW Throttle Position % should never be 0 or 100 there always must be a "signal" value. When you first "key on" the PCM checks all sensors for a "return" signal. If 0 or 100 were to return it would indicate an "open" or "short" in the circuit.
You would want to check with the engine running for an accurate reading.
As long as it idles and drives properly all is well.

Yes, the throttle position sensor. sorry i shouldve wrote that out. last week my car just shut off on me mid-run and Couldn't not get it to start no matter what i did. i wrote this question while troubleshooting and had my scanner was reading the Throttle Position Sensor was reading 16% with my foot off the pedal.
Checked Spark and confirmed i had that, then Fuel and confirmed that i was getting fuel to the motor. Lastly i made sure i had air coming in and confirmed that wasnt the issue. after 2hrs, and visiting this awesome forum, i was able to figure out that my father-in-law did not set the camshaft sensor properly. i re-set it and boom it fired right up.

but then uncle Rodney came knocking. so now i am in the middle of replacing connecting rod bearings and main bearings. crank is in great shape and looks perfect. its a miracle.

My next question is, does anybody happen to know what the torque specs are for the rod caps? Also need the torque specs for the main tray bolts and the oil pan bolts.
