How do I replace a throttle position sensor?


Answer by  swampy02 (145)

It depends on model of car but for most newer vehicles it is usually a plug/play sort of replacement. Follow the air intake hose over to where it meets the engine. The TPS should be there, 2 bolts hold it on and it has a computer connector on it.

Generally most throttle position sensors are bolted onto the throttle body, and it's a simple unbolt, remove, and replace affair.

Typically, there is one wiring harness and two screws attached to the sensor. Remove both carefully so you don't break the wire or snap a screw. When installing the new part be sure that the arm on the throttle moves the sensor the proper way and that it doesn't bind. Some sensors require adjustment afterward.

You first need to locate the sensor on your vehicle.Then simply disconect the electrical conector, remove the retaining bolts, then the sensor. Make sure to line up the new sensor properly or you may have a high idle or stalling problem.

Disconnect battery. Find TPS on engine. Tie throttle away from sensor. Remove wires. Use a deep socket to remove sensor. Install new sensor. reconnect wires. Reconnect battery


Answer by  BigMACK (92)

an open ended socket wrench can be used to remove the TPS sensor which is located where the upper intake manifold and the air intake meet in the engine bay. It should only have one clip attaching it to the harness

Typically all you have to do is disassemble some of the intake system and unbolt the sensor from the opening of the intake plenum. The should just be a few bolts holding it on and a few electrical plugs going to it. Then reverse the process with the new one.
