While starting the vehicle, it lunges forward. It also lunges forward in reverse and neutral. I replaced the TPS. I verified the TB linkage and the shift linkage. The backup, neutral safety switch appears to be functioning properly. I am out of ideas.
Do you
have the same problem?

Does it kill the engine? Will it stay running while in gear?

If I shift through the range of gears, going back to park, it dies. It really does not feel like it is in park though. If that makes sense? Before loosing reverse all together, it would sometimes die when putting it into reverse.
