Default TPS sensor...

Would a TPS sensor make overdrive come in late? My truck(in my signature) doesn't shift into OD untill like 60mph. It barely pulls at 55mph in 3rd at my MAX rpm(which is only 2700). Once it goes into OD the torque convertor locks at like 65mph. Its reading like 3volts at the TPS sensor.


Is there anyway to like clean it out or should i just buy a new one?

Thanks for the help
Russ

Yep!!!! sure will cause that problem. My '93 has 302,000 on it and have experienced that exact condition several times.

One word of advice: price the TPS from Cummins as well as the stealership. The one for my '93 is ALOT cheaper through Cummins and they seem to last longer as well.

Hope this helps. I bought my truck brand new so I have found alot of the things like that that seem to be a maintiance item. BTM.

I have a 97 ram 2500 diesel, I would suggest using contact cleaner. I simply spray it through the opening then rotate the sensor several times with a screwdriver, dump out the left over liquid and repeat several times until the liquid coming out is clean. I did this on my truck at about 100k and have not had a problem since. I now have 187k on my truck.
