97 burb drives like a gokart

we have this problem on our 97 suburban 5.7v8. when u give it gas it tends to not want more than 1/10th of the peddle or it will go into gay mode and just have the rpm's rise. today my dad replaced the throttle position sensor and its still the same. tried advancing and retarding the timing, still the same.. i unplugged the maf and it still ran, and i forget if it runs its good or if it runs its bad.. chevy forums dont know crap about there own cars.is there any way to test other sensors with the volt meter to dectect if there failing or not? thanks

Did you give them a better description than "gay mode"? 'cause that doesn't say a whole lot. Are you saying it's slipping out of gear?

It means that it likes to rub it's tailpipe against other suburban's tailpipes

check the transmission wire harness. same thing happened on my 95 4.6L... it would be fine most of the times, but you could give it any amount of gas you want and it wouldnt slip out of gear.. but when it did slip out of gear, I would be cruising along at 1500 - 2000rpm's the car would loose power to the rear wheels, and the rpms would climb , just like neutral. then if I revved it, like over 4k, it would engage, then it would slip.. in a couple seconds it would re-engage and drive like normal. I took it to a tranny shop and they said the main wireharness was filling up with tranny fluid and it was "cross-signaling" and it went into neutral. THey emptied out the coupler and it didn't do it on the way home. So I went home and I filled the connection with dialectric grease and it never happened again.

I don't know if this is the same, but my 4.6 bird drove like that without the MAF on. I had an LMAF on there, unplugged, while I was waiting for my chip to get returned, and that is how it drove.

What about the truck just having homosexual tendancies? He did say it goes into "Gay Mode" a couple times....or maybe the truck is just really, really, really happy, hey, you never know, it is a GM product after all

Sounds kind of like bad 02's to me. Mine did that with a bad o2 that I dropped in tranny fluid during the swap.

well uh...if the check engine light is on, why don't you get the codes CHECKED?! That would most likely give you your answer!

Usually when you give it gas and the check engine light flashes on and off it is missing so that might be one of the factors, but its just my 2 cents.
