Default Throttle Position Sensor Question

In a earlier post I had said that I thought the TPS on my 1989 Camry 2.0 was
bad. When I testd the TPS the volts went from 7 withot the accelerator
pressed at all to 4 when the peddle was fully pressed. According to the
service manual it shold start at 0 and go to 8 when fully depressed. Even
though double checked that I was testing it right i wasn't sure i was so I
unplugged the TPS and it drives great. It won't kickdown when I accelerate
hard, and there is no difference between the power and normal button. Other
than that it shifts great with plenty of power and O/D works good too.

Will it hurt to keep driving it with the TPS unplugged?


Thanks for yur help :-0

The engine ECU also uses the TPS signal.

Would it hurt you so much by getting a new TPS?
