Sounds like the tps should put a code up but the only way to tell is by putting a new one in they are expensive try using a mates one first. Ebay ones arent very good either.

There is a test for them in the Gregorys manual with a multimeter - someone has one for a VG @ $10 on Ebay ...VG may fit if it has Ecotec...think it does. VN may also fit-----eyeball both or do a search on Google for TPS and see if they have same ID.
