Many things... When was last "healthy" tune up? Plugs, wires, ALL filters especially fuel filter??? I would start there. Also might want to run a good fuel system cleaner like SeaFoan, STP etc through with next tankful of fuel

    I already tried those suggestions, but I did some research and I believe it is the electric throttle system.

    then have an OBII scan done and address what fault codes indicate. It could be TPS, MAF or MAP sensors.

Car chugging when stopped. I have replaced tps but doesn't fix. Stops chugging when tps is removed.

The TPS is used by the vehicles ECM for power enrichment,and idle stability when you remoce the sensor connector the ECM uses a substitute value so you can drive the vehicle. So the TPS is not the problem here You are basically suffering from a vehicle lean condition or false air. Removing the TPS connection only enrichen the car.Trouble shoot the MAF (mass air flow ) this is the one that houses the air filter check the boot going to the intake manifold make sure its not cracked or leaking air giving false air.2_24_2012_5_22_13_am.gif
