Excessive fuel consumption
« Reply #15 on: May 22, 2012, 10:38:00 AM »

Don't think there are any aftermarket, some places carry used but are very expensive. I have a good used one for $50 shipped, if you're interested.

Leak between 2&3, headgasket right? Or bad valveseats?

The mechanic wasn't sure, and I don't have the money to have him take it down to find out yet. Those were his thoughts though. I am certainly interested in your TPS though... best price I've gotten yet on a used one. How do I order it?

Just an update on the problem...
The catalytic converter was partially plugged and it burned the valves. While the mechanic was doing the top of the engine he found ball bearings in the oil during a change resulting in a complete engine overhaul. Luckily the mechanic is a friend of mine and semi-retired. He put a resonator in place of the converter and $2500 later I can once again enjoy my toy.
