Hi I'm Wayne I will help you with this have you bleed the brakes, how many miles on them did you check the TPS (throttle position sensor )
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I bleed 2 qt of brake fluid through the system. No air from any bleeder or lines at ABS unit.

No I would not think that the TPS would make the vehicle smoke or run rich. The MAP sensor was replaced.
