Location of tps and map sensor on a 02 jeep grand cherokee 4.7l

Both are attached to the throttle body. Tps is on the other end of the throttle plate shaft opposite the linkage, MAP is on the side...has small vacuum hose underneath and is flat, about 3" long. The other item on the TB is the idle air motor, next to tps.

Where would a map sensor be located? on 1999 gmc suburban

Hi, the manifold absolute pressure (M.A.P) sensor is located on the intake manifold. I am not familiar with the GMC vehicles as I am in South Africa. The M.A.P sensor is usually situated on the top of the intake manifold furthest from the air intake/ throttle body. I hope this info will help.

I would look at the codes,, jumper the two upper connector holes in the diagnostic link with a paperclip,, turn the key on, and read the blinks of the check engine light,, first will come 3 12 codes then any error codes. If you get a repair manual for that vehicle it will tell you how to perform these tests.

Engine revs high

I've seen before where the IAC sensor gets dirty. The IAC sensor is located on the top of the throttle body. If you refer to the throttle body as a clock, and picture the egde closest to the front bumper is 6 o'clock then the IAC sensor would be located at 12 o'clock. I think in a 02 GC it should have vaccum lines attached to it, and it's held down by couple of phillp's head screws. (I think) Take it off and clean it with throttle body cleaner until all the black gunk is out of it.
If you are not sure where the throttle body is, find the air filter box under the hood located on the driver's side lower corner. There will be a plastic "tube" going from that box to the top of the engine. Take this tube off and any part that connects to the top of the engine. You will then see the throttle body. It would also be beneficial to clean the throttle body out as well. (It only take a minute and it can only help your gas miliage.) You can find throttle body cleaner at any auto parts store, or Walmart or Target. Let me know if this helps, thanks!
