There is no code 51. You screwed up, do it again.

Well, it could be this:

Switch condition signal

Displayed when A/C is on when TE1 and E1 connected in test mode

that code is also displayed when you hit the accelerator pedal with those terminal jumped.

No touching of the throttle.. Engine was on.. could be misadjusted TPS??

If that's the case then I don't know what is wrong.. this thing is bad.. It's idling down around 600 and when I let off the gas it drops down to 400RPM and then recovers to around 600... it's running like crap. Any idea's guys? For now I opened the throttle by-pass valve screw to up the idle..

Code 41 is the TPS I think, could it have been 41?

I don't know.. I unplugged TPS tonight and went for a drive.. it drove no different unplugged.. I popped it apart and the thing has 3 stupid contacts inside it's either on or off.. I don't know.. people tell me i drop a lot of dark smoke out when I romp on the gas too.. and the fumes at idle are strong... Also I think i need new conrod bearings.. pretty sure of it actually

Well, considering one of the possible problems causing code 51 is a bad TPS idle circut, you might have a bad TPS.....
Even though it checked out.
