    '01 Virage TX will not idle

    I need help...this one runs great above 2-3 thousand RPMs but shuts down when you drop below that. I don't have a manual but does this unit have a idle control valve or where should I look for the problem?

    My guess would be a TPS sensor.

    The 01 TX is carburated.

    Thanks for setting me straight addict, now I'll have to think about this one while I'm having some beers with the guys tonight. LOL

    '01 Virage TX will not idle

    This one is definitely injected...I'll recheck the year as I may have look at the HIN incorrectly. Where is the TPS located and what does it look like?

    Thanks for the help.

    '01 TXi will not idle

    I did make a mistake in that this is a TXi not a TX. Thanks for your input and I found the TPS on the parts diagram. I'll let you know if this is the fix.

    You new you were right didn't you Al ?

    PWCGEEK,
    That would make it a TXI then .TPS is located at the rear of the intake manifold .It is attached to the through shaft on the rear venturie .2 BY 8MM bolts hold it on and 1 bolt attached to the reed box .The venturie looks like a carby .It has 3 wires in a sheath and is connected to the harness by a push style connection .I would start there .Make sure you have a good connection at this point .Use some pointy nosed pliers and close up the female connectors so that when the engine vibrates it gives a proper connection .
    I would get a spare one any way .Don't throw the old one away .Keep it in your toolkit on the ski as they will crap themselves and sometimes only idle even though you have the throttle fully open

    Good luck

    '01 Virage TX won't idle

    Guess what....the ski is shown by original decals to be a TX but it is injected. I was getting quite confused by what I was seeing versus what the book for a TX indicated that I should be seeing.

    Thanks again for the help. I have a new TPS on the way and am confident that it will solve the problem. I'll post results next week when I get it installed.

    PWC, try to take the slack out of the cable as well and see if you don't pick up a little speed.

    My mind automatically went to injection when I read idle control valve. LOL
