Be careful. That TPS is delicate and has to slip on the tang on the throttle shaft just right. You have to back up the TPS a bit and wind it up several degrees to align the screws. The TPS has a spring and is at zero when off. When on the shaft, it is turned a bit against the spring and at some "non zero" rotation.Thx behlinia, I recently replaced the CamSensor so I have a good idea where that is. However being very illiterate when it comes to mechanics I am not sure where the throttle cable is.
I do know where the metal plate is (when I say metal plate I mean the plate I can move that accellerates the engine when under the hood). Is that somewhat close to the TPS?
Sorry for being dumb
See pic. The TPS has a slot in it's shaft.Thx Sheila!
ChartMaker, is this something (EVEN ME) could change out? When I did a YouTube on changing out the TPS it seemed pretty straight forward. Take off the two screws, unplug and your done. Very similar to the CamSensor I replaced.
Completely lost when you said " slip on the tang on the throttle shaft just right. You have to back up the TPS a bit and wind it up several degrees to align the screws."
lol. at least you explain things a lot better then i do. I have a habit of thinking every one knows the locations and function of the parts and sensors.Might need to clean/replace iac (idle air control). Silver canister with black plastic cap sitting atop the manifold right behind the throttle body. Remove it and spray it out with throttle body/air intake cleaner or brake cleaner. I would spray clean the throttle body and check for vacuum leaks also. Up high, down low, bigdogg, im too slow, lol!
