    so does this mean the lever on the back side goes to the left side of the throttle or the right side on the throttle body?

    Make sure the throttle valve is closed, then position the sensor over the shaft and rotate the sensor counterclockwise to align the bolt holes...You will feel tension when turning the TPS ccw, this indicates it is correctly positioned...saailer

SOURCE: 1989 s10

not sure on the book procedure, but on my 91 4x4 extended cab I had to undo the u joint caps on both ends, then colapse the shaft as short as it will go by pushing back the slip yoke. Then you need to move the front of the shaft in by the trans and as far forward as you can. it will be right along side the yoke you unbolted it from and the u joint has to be turned just right for maximum room, but this should give you enough room to force the tail of the shaft pass the crossmember. Its very tight.

Why My 89 pu toyota run better w/o the tps sensor

I believe that the TSP on your Toyota is adjustable. Follow the manufacturer recommendations to adjust the position of your TPS, and MAKE SURE YOU PUT THE RIGHT TPS ON THE VEHICLE.

My 89 Seville STS started to idle high sometimes but not all the time. Now it seems to be doing it mostly all the time. I just replaced the ISC myself with no change. Is there something else I can...

Yes, there is a procedure to get the engine to idle correctly. Turn engine off, key on Open the throttle and let in snap shut against the minimum air screw. The throttle angle displayed in diagnostics on ECM parameter ED01 TPS -1.0 to + 1.0. The TPS should be adjusted to fall into this parameter. After that has been done. Connect a wire from the -side of battery to terminal c on the isc motor. and a wire to the + side of battery to terminal d. The plunger should be at its highest position against the throttle lever to adjust. This may take a few times of applying power to get it to ratchet to full ext. The TPS parameter should be at 10.5 to 11.5 on the diagnostic center. Adjust by turning the plunger on the ISC. Press the cool blue button and the off button to get the diagnostic function up. Any more question please reply as I have a service manual and fixed my 89 seville for this problem.

Hello, my name is Tim. My uncle has a 89' Bronco ii. While cruising on flat, level highway, the transmission kicks in and out of overdrive. Do you have a suggestion? The transmission has been replaced,...

Durango would shift in and out of overdrive while driving at a steady rate. Replaced the throttle position sensor and fixed the problem. here are a few causes for a bad tps. transmission shift issues, bucking, jerking, idle surging, engine cutoff, hesitation on take off, surge while cruising down highway. have a good day ! tps is used by computer to monitor throttle position and adjust the speed, fuel and air to match throttle position. if tps is bad it will send wrong info. to computer. hope this helps !! if all else fails clean maf sensor. check tps first.

Code p0122 and p0123 after changing computer


The problem is regarding TPS (throttle position sensor located in throttle body). Both codes are TPS voltage out of range (low and high) If you get both codes at once, then :

TPS may be defective,
wiring to TPS may be shorted to ground.
There may be a problem in the +5V circuit powering the TPS.
There may be a problem with ECU connector.

My 89 4.0 A/T 4wd cherokee gets to 20mph then bogs down

What are the RPMs at when it's at 20 MPH?
I would personally start listening for vacuum leaks. That's a quick easy fix.
The 89 is notorious for problems with the TPS sensor (throttle position sensor) and the idle air control valve thos are also cheap easy fixes.
What do you mean by bog down is there any shuddering involved?
Shuddering this could point to a short on the engine block.

89 z24 stalls instantly when shifting out of park

Your lockup torque converter is bad I believe. When you shift from Park into any gear it will die.
