just changed the head gasket, car was a gift, changed the throttle positioning sensor too. wont idle at all maybe the screw is not tight enough? the throttle works but it wont accelarate and it wont idle unless the gap between the throttle screw is help a little bit. a friend says there may be a short in the tps harness. any suggestions? help please.

Hey mate ..not a lot of activity on this forum. I have a 89 Amigo 4X4 2.6L FI, that has a bad fuel pump. Although i have had my share of issues with the truck. It ran great for the 1st year...then ever week..something else was bad or not working.

Why did u replace the head gasket ??? Check for vacuum leaks !!!

If you get let me know what it was !!! Thanks,

Good Luck,JzJzz

i replaced the head because it was blown, it was like that when my gf dad gave it to me. the vacuum line diagram is awful. i did the best i could on getting them back but the throttle doesnt react like it should any suggestions. if you have a 2.6 fuel injectioon, could you send me pics of your vacuum lines coming from the pump to the switch and the intake manifold, thanksl

Hey mate.....sorry for the late reply. I will see if I have any pictures or diagrams. Mine will not help, I have stripped most of the emisson options off the truck since I use it only off road in the Outback!!! The good thing is, when it does run, it will haul a lot of the amber fluid...so I don't go dry !!!

Cheers Mate, Jzjzz... and the Man from Down Under.
