What does a throttle positioning censor for an 05 ford focus look like

I suggest you google 05 ford focus throttle positioning sensor. This sensor keeps you air intake throttle at the proper position when the engine is cold and changes position when the engine has warmed up. to locate the sensor, remove the hose that comes from the air filter housing to the engine. the hose you removed was connected to the air throttle. you can manipulate the position of this throttle by having someone push the gas pedal down slowly while you watch the throttle move. notice that the gas pedal cable is connected to the mechanism that opens and closes the air throttloe. also notice that beside this mechanism, you have an electric throttle positioning sensor. Pay close attention to the existing throttle positioning sensor before you remove it if you are planning on replacing this sensor. because if you do not install the new sensor in the same degree that the old one was in, you will throw the calibration off. word of advice. buy some throttle cleaner from your local auto parts. turn the car on with the air filter to throttle body hose off and have someone push the gas pedal down slightly to keep the engine from turning off. spray the throttle body cleaner til all the black crud comes off the inside of the throttle body. this dirty crud is what was making your throttle stick and not working properly.

Engine power reduced

The Catalytic Converter maybe clogged, I have a 2001 3800 Engine that just had the intake Manifold gasket changed 80,000 miles and three days later the car has issue with power due to antifreeze clogging the converter. Changing converter now, Dealer checked it and found the converter after I looked at it for three days to find nothing with the engine.

My '05 Tacoma 3.5L has developed a quick skip or hesitation when I excelorate. I had the spark plugs replaced but the problem continues.

Could be a problem with the throttle position sensor. If the carbon track on which the throttle plate slider contact runs has dirt on it or is worn then this would interrupt signal to the ECU. The TPS has three pins in the socket. Two (usually the outer two) supply the 5 volts reference and 0 volts ground to the carbon strip. the middle pin measures the voltage 'tapped' by the throttle position sliding contact. Disconnect the TPS lead and with a voltmeter simply measure the resistance between one of the outer pins and the middle pin as the throttle plate is opened and closed. The response should be smooth chnage in resistance with no 'drop-outs'. If a drop is consistently detected at a particular throttle plate position then the TPS needs to opened and cleaned if dirty or replaced if faulty.
