(grumble) - this development does not jive with what I wanted you to say

"oh sure Tom the TPS sensor doesn't have a thing to do with the torque
converter locking up or the over drive engaging - even though you knew
it did in the first place we're goine to lie to you and tell you that it
doesnt have an effect!"

That would have made em feel lots better...
