SOURCE: replacing bad camshaft position sensor

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Remove water pump pulley attaching bolts, then the serpentine belt and water pump pulley.
  3. Disconnect sensor wiring connector and remove sensor retaining bolt.
  4. Twist and pull sensor to remove.
Reverse procedure to install and prior to installing new sensor, lubricate sensor O-ring.

It is located under the water pump. Make sure when you remove the sensor that you rotate the crank shaft and look in the hole to make sure the pick up magnet is still in there. Sometimes they come loose and cause a no start or long crank. You will need to have the code cleared still.

SOURCE: Missing, stalling Pontiac Sunfire

The OBD II code for P0400 is Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Malfunction.
I'm sure the only thing you have left is you may have to replace the EGR valve or check for any leak from the vaccum lines going to to EGR valve.

SOURCE: on a 04 camry with 2.4 ltr engine, can I replace

I think the terms "Throttle Positon Sensor", TPS and "Throttle Body" can be misleading at least in regards to the 04 Camry.

My 04 Camry gave a diagnostic reading of P2121 for my problem "Throttle PEDAL position switch D circuit". However, we changed out the complete Throttle Body/TPS (Toyota Part #22030-0H020) that did NOT fix problem.

The 04 Camry TPS Electronic Module "Throttle Positon Sensor" is factory assembled and riveted to the side of the throttle body. The only way to service/inspect it would be to cut off or drill out the rivets. Not sure you could open the darn thing if you got it off, but that seems to be the only way Toyota sells them!!

Hopefully a new Throttle PEDAL Position Sensor (Toyota Part # 78010-33010 PEDAL ASSY, ACC)
will fix it. This is located under the dash near the accelerator pedal.

So, now I would recommend FIRST to replace the "Throttle PEDAL Positon Sensor" (it is much, much cheaper) and then the Throttle Body/TPS assembly!! Unless of course, you get a diagnostic code as you did for "faulty throttle body!!

2008 trailblazer ls throttles body sensor

For the I6 engine, there is a Throttle Body Position Sensor, (TPS) attached to the actual throttle body. This cannot be removed from the throttle body itself. You need to buy the whole throttle body which includes the TPS. Just did this myself, one of the chain stores offers lifetime warranty by the way. It's very easy, turn off all HVAC inside the cab, then disconnect the battery first, very important step. Take the top resonator off, unhook the black ducting going to the air cleaner box and throttle body. Disconnect the electrical connector on top of the throttle body. Now it's just 4 easy bolts for the entire throttle body to come off. You CAN reuse the old hard plastic O-ring, no need to get another one unless it's damaged.

How to replace throttle position sensor on a 1995 pontiac grand prix gtp

Remove all parts to access the throttle-body, typically the sensor is on the side with 2 screws.  Remove the wired plug and then the two screws.  Assembly is the reverse being careful to fit the flat piece of the throttle-body into the groove of the sensor. Do not overtighten.
Replace connector and other parts.
Typically the sensor is on the drivers side of the throttle body. May be a torx screw, or phillips (star).
Good luck.
Canada Rocks!

I am told I need to repalce the entire throttle body on my 2005 toyota sienna. They said that the throttle position sensor can't just be replaced becasue of "fly by wire" technology. Is this true?

I would get a second opinion try NAPA or AutoZone and ask for the price of the throttle position sensor because on most cars you can get them without replacing the whole throttle body
