Those are in PDF mode so you should be able to enlarge the view. Sorry I don't know how to make them larger when converting from Onenote to Acrobat and if you know how, tell me and I will see what I can do.

Hi, am getting so frustrated with this car now, I really dont know what to do anymore. I have just been told by a mechanic that the throttle body needs to be programmed to control the idle speed. Is this true? If so please let me know and if you know how to do it let me also know. This are the recent codes I have P0161, P0130, P0133, P0150 AND P0153

P0130, P0133, P0150, P0153 and P0161 are all faults with the HO2S circuits. Either you have a fault with the wirings or the sensors are not working.

None of the codes are related to the throttle controls which do not need any programming. The computer would relearn after some running and the O2 sensor codes are not going to make that occur. You need to get them resolved first.

If you had removed the TPS or meddled with the throttle control stop screws, recalibration would be necessary.

There are many things that needs to be taken into considerations but I would suggest getting the trouble codes rectified first. No point in going on a wild goose chase.

The reason why I was asking about recalibrating the Throttle is because someone has tampered with it and another mechanic is trying to charge me about $150 to calibrate it for me

Don't worry about that first. Get the O2 codes resolved first.

I still cant enlarge the schematics you sent to me, you said they in one note format, please send them to me via the one note format and let me convert it here and I hope I can increase the font. I have someone coming in tomorrow to check on the O2 sensors for me. Thank you very much
