1995 Jetta from the first Fast and Furious movie

Needing a little help. I am working on the original 1995 Jetta from the first Fast and Furious movie and it is having a problem running. The car starts and idles fine but when I go to rev it up it falls flat on its face unless I feather the throttle then it will climb rpm's but if you go past half throttle its like its running out of gas til you let off the gas pedal a bit and it will pick back up. The car has been to several different shops and has had a slew of parts thrown at it. Its had fuel pump module, timing belt, cap, rotor, plugs, wires, tps, a couple computers, prob more but don't know. The car has codes p0510 and p1544 current. I cant seem to find any diagnostic info on the codes for this car anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the info. The second code I have is P1544 not P0510. Any info on that code at all? Its looking like the tps is the culprit possibly. Is there any special things that need to happen when replacing it or is it just a bolt on and go?

P1544 indicates high throttle position sensor (TPS). Probably due to engine memory loss?

Might wanna try the solution near bottom..
http://myfastgti.com/volkswagen/threads/17557-Emergency!!!!!-Help!!!!!-S.o.s!!!!!!

In EOBD II, Error Code: P1544
Fault Location: Throttle Motor Position Sensor 1 (G187) - High Input
Possible Cause:
Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)(K83) Triggered on first occurrence.
Wiring short to positive.
Throttle motor position sensor.

Also found for general vw's http://engine-codes.com/p1544_volkswagen.html

Hope that helps. Have no idea where the TPS is, or how to replace it!
