Throttle position sensor or IAC valve maybe.

Replaced the weird long 4wd shifter arm that moved back and forth, rattled, and the slip on style **** kept coming off, with a steeda tri-ax shifter arm, and a (threaded type) upr grip shift ****, that was on my mustang before the MGW shifter. I love it.

Theres one still there went out today, also picked up an overhead console from an explorer

So yeah, I would feel bad selling you a knowingly defective cluster. I do have a few spare ones I might be able to make one out of them. Is it for the 95?

This is why I don't like driving my truck a lot, people just they pay attention when they drive.

This lady in her 2013 Honda Accord pulled out of her work parking lot like she was driving a semi. she was in the middle of both lanes and I had no room to move.

Granted my truck really has nothing but I'm still not happy...
