Suggested list by Napa Auto Parts in Canada is 80$, jobber price is 44$, not sure what you'd get for price.

No it's not hard to change at all...

An easy way to locate it...

Look inside the engine compartment, with the engine shut off get someone to push and release the gas pedal inside the car.

Find where the throttle cable goes to (part that moves when moving the gas pedal)

On the other end of that shaft should be the throttle position sensor (TPS).

    By the way suggested list = price garage would charge you for it

    jobber price = price garage pays for it

    You would get a price somewhere in between the 2

Where is the trottle position senser located on my 1995 Ford F-250

The throttle position sensor is mounted on the throttle body.
Follow the big hoses from the air filter housing back to the engine and the first part on the engine you come to...... is the throttle body.

Buy the throttle position sensor first and match it to the part on the throttle body to identify the part you want to change.

Fixed check engine trouble code but light with same code comes on

Your transmission problem could be related to the TPS sensor. The TPS sensor indicated to the PCM when and what gear the transmission should be in. As for the Lucas and other additives to the transmission may be doing it more harm then good, As the transmission oil is thicker, the transmission line pressure increases. The PCM try's to compensate for that by letting the converter lock up clutch to slip and the fluid retention in the solenoid to change gears stick causing it to shudder between gear shifts. Recap, Check the TPS sensor readings and the Wire Harness. Look for loose connections and corrosion that may not be giving the proper readings to the ECM. Rescan the car for any DTC codes and most transmission chop can do that for you if your going to get it serviced there anyways. Have the transmission fluid flushed and filter changed, and have them do a transmission line pressure checked, there are additives out there to keep the fluid from foaming which is ok, but changing the fluid's weigh can cause transmission failure. Good luck and hope this helps and keep me posted, be glad to help.
