So i finally got the code for the TPS/IAC. I was looking at the TPS and the torx head on on of the scews is so rusted that i cant get a bit in there. What kind o thread di they use on those screws it looks very coarse almost like a wood screw[/b]

Basically what is in there, but not quite the same as a wood screw. More like the screws that hold plastic drill cases together.

Some TPS's come with new screws, but IDK about the neon's, as I have never bought new for it. Not sure if the dealer even sells those screws separately.
Probably shouldn't listen to anything your penis says, that guy's a dick.
Patience, of course, is a very powerful weapon, but sometimes I start to regret that it is not a firearm.
Too much time spent here is a sign of a bad case of Ownaneonvirus.

Try a junk yard, and just start removing screws from the engine/interior, and place in pocket.... :-**
