I originally got a...

I originally got a P0038 code and replaced the driver side downstream O2 sensor. The code never cleared but today I lost throttle control and the engine died. Before this I had noticed that the idle kept going up to around 1300 rpm while stopped and then would creep down. I am pretty sure it is the TPS from what I have been reading.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you located all of the vehicle's oxygen sensors? Are the wires leading to and from each intact and in good shape?

Yes. I have checked the wires to the O2 sensors. They appear fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Dodge?

2004 Dakota 4.7l

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Dakota yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, I am fixing it myself.
