Car hammers across the band. No surging at all. Perfect idle. Even with A/C on.

My car is now DONE. CLOSE THIS POST!!!!!!
ok, but I think you should be following the shop manual's procedures as there are certain voltage/resistance values that must be met

although it may seem fine now, you may still have problems if you do not have it set to the correct value range... won't hurt to double check now

I understand that many of you don't have the aussie shop manual, but since the sensors are the same worldwide, you can use the P5 shop manual that's illegally floating around on the internet

Appreciate your continued help. Really feel it can't be wrong as 1 millimeter either side of it's current location creates bad results. It's amazingly touchy. I figured it would be all the way one way, all the way the other or in the middle. But it is ridiculous. As I said 1mm either direction and the car surges.

Having said that, based on my history so far, I may just drop into Mazda and get it checked. I could do with out any future issues!!!

if you trust your local dealer, go for it... otherwise just follow the instructions of checking the TPS adjustment in the shop manual
