My 99 SLK 230 has a problem with the throttle. The car starts and idles but when you press the gas - nothing but idle. I replaced the TPS Throttle Postion sensor with 2 used ones and the replacements didn't change anything. What other part/sensor could be preventing the car from gaining rev/rpm? Thanks for any help or info you can provide....

Welcome from New Hampshire, any codes? Try and reset the throttle. Hold the pedal to the floor,put the key in pos 2 (do not start) and wait 30 seconds then turn and remove key. Now start the car and see if that made a difference.
