Earlier i disconnected the TPS and a started it and revved it a little and it seemed to rev smoother ans alot better off than when i reconnected it and try again

also a easy way to remove rocker cover i feel like im going to break the Spark plug leads when tryn to pull them ( no im not pulling by the cord but i cant get enough grip on the boot

You can get special plier type thigs for gripping spark plug lead boots - check out ur nearest ripco or Auto 1 etc. - maybe do an ebay search - ie. for something like "Spark Plug Boot Pliers" to see if you can get an idea of what ur after.

you can check the fault codes or check the tps voltage at idle..
otherwise if the car drives and changes gear and kicks down fine then generally the tps is fine..
