Can you access eBay? It might be a better alternative to you for small parts like this one.
The only adjustment would be the "zero" position (throttle plate completely closed, sensor to minimum position). If throttle does not close completely, it might be something else wrong.
Idle i aspeed is regulated separately, by the IAC
valve that sits on top of throttle body.
Yes, I have access eBay, also alredy buy a 6 pack Motorcraft Sparkplugs, the time to came is over a month (30 - 40) days and the cost of mail service is over twice the piece
(60+ dollars), so I be afraid to get another new one sensor and have the "same problem".
The throttle plate is work fine, close and open smoothly and no grip at all... the engine speed at idle (zero) is perfect (600rpm) and perfet correted if turn on the air conndition or any other accessory...
My big doubt is if have any adjustament in zero position to correct the plate there is inside to command the sensor, apears to me it now about 45º need to be adjusted on a new position to the sensor work correctly.
If I manualy fix the in 45º backward position (no screw can be fixed) and test, I have a correct sensor read...
If I pop out and directly insert the sensor to original position there is a big delay to the sensor start work...
If a mount rolling back the position about 45º and twist the spring to original position, I have a big readind while the throttle plate in zero position, about 60%, and if I open the throttle plate I have a overload, the sensor show 100% whith a minimal twist and if I continue I get a zero position (sensor overload).
If I manually put a screwdriver the sensor read ok, 0 to 100%, the problem appears the plate initial position...
Are you 100% sure you have installed the new one correctly? It can be kind of tricky to get the TPS
aligned correctly with the "tang" (flat blade) on the throttle shaft if you have never done it before.
Well, I read a lot of manuals and videos in the web... the tricks is an minimal adjustamment... not my problem, is about 45º
Your part no is correct. Fits '97-07 all DOHC
Takes a bit of logic and care but, on the car, looking forward on the car, thus looking at the back side of the sensor: (side with the part no)
turn the elect connector straight down and push it on flush. Then turn it CCW and you will feel the tang engage the TPS
just before your holes line up. Insert screws.
CCW is counterclockwise. Go the wrong way and you mess things up bad.
Now remove the accordian if you have not already done so, and move the throttle plate from closed to open and back. It should move with spring resistance. The throttle body has a spring and the TPS
has a spring.
Best of luck.
part no is correct? My car is a 1997 DOHC
Duratec 24V engine... and the sensor originally removed of my car is on the second frame in photo, work on car since 1997 to 2013...
I alredy do your recommendation, but while the sensor is in the "screw position" I alredy have a big read of sensor since the zero position...
Anybody have an scanner EML327 to show me how yours car work?
