Have you tried a motor factors? My local, gone now :cry: , used to try loads of suppliers to get me a good deal
Sid James gone but never forgotten
Jimny 1.6 not as good as an SJ but still good

Cheers, my system didn't find anything, but I did find this..

If they confirm that it has the TPS still on it, which it looks like it does, then that would fit!

Fantastic, thanks for that, got a good motor factors round here actually so I might see if they can get me a new one cheaper, failing that, the Swift It will be... :salute: Thanks all...

The only for the injection Maruti Gypsy might be the same. I can probably get those. Has it got a part/code number on it?

I've put the fuse in to see if there are any codes but they are all fine, there is no code, just the all clear code!?! Think I'll have to check all the hoses and see if there's a leak to why it runs so fast on start up from cold!! The plot thickens....
