    Check your fuel filter if you smell gas, it might be clogged or fucked up somehow.

    My car did that right before I blew my engine.

    So check your compression.

    But then again, my car was a rotary, so who knows...

    It SHOULD throw a code but it might not. The TPS is on the back of the TB facing the firewal. It is rivited on so you will most likely have to swap your TB.
