SOURCE: I need to know how to replace the throttle

The TPS is a small switch about the size of a butane lighter. It has 1 electric connector and 2 screws. It is located on the airhorn which is the metal part behind all the plastic ductwork of your engines air filter.

You unscrew the part and it will come off. There is a small slot to match the flap on the shaft it attaches to. The TPS fits onto this shaft and thats all you have to worry about before replacing the screws. Then tighten the part, switch electric connections and you should be done.

If he engine idles a little faster or slower, one of the screw slots is elongnated. You loosen both screws and slightly twist the slot to your preference and then tighten. Thats all it takes.

How do I do a throttle body replacement relearn on a 04 isuzu ascender

The relearn is done by unhooking the battery for 30-60 minutes. With all HVAC OFF, hook the battery back up and drive your Ascender around for about 40 min or so, at this time, it will relearn. To test it, stop the vehicle put it in park and turn your AC on, if your car doesn't show signs of boggin down or trying to die on you, your relearn was done correctly. This is all assuming that your throttle body is CLEAN!!! If it's not clean, your idle will be bad and engine will try and die on you at idle when your AC or Defroster are on. Relearn should of already been done---> you always disconnect the battery when cleaning the throttle body, as to not to damage the stepper motor that moves the butterfly. To properly clean the throttle body and for best results, always remove the entire throttle body and clean BOTH sides with a sensor safe spray like Seafoam and a rag or nylon brush, you can reuse the hard plastic gasket. Hope this helps!

I had 2004 ford explorer lxt the gas pedal no working

The throttle is drive by wire meaning there is no cable linkage operating the throttle directly. Instead the throttle is operated electronically. There are sensors connected to the pedal as well as to the throttle body. Either one or both could be bad. I suggest scanning the OBD I I diagnostic port for trouble codes and then looking up the codes to determine the problem.

Engine idle changes when I turn on the A/C in my 2004 TrailBlazer

Throttle body needs cleaning, the cleaning process needs to be done on the front side and especially the back side of the throttle body. Also, while doing the cleaning, the battery should be disconnected to allow the computer to reset and relearn to the clean throttle body.

My 2004 Explorer will not accelerate, only idles. Disconnected the battery to clean the terminals. Charged the battery on 6amps High for two hours. Started fine but will not accelerate from idle.

verify the gas pedal cable is connected out at the throttle body,you will need to remove the plastic cover that covers the linkage on the throttle body.

How does a throttle actuator go bad and could it happen while they are doing body work on the car? Would this also cause my car to need my keys reprogrammed?

Was a computer replaced? If it has electronic throttle, it most likely needs to be relearned as well as having the keys reprogrammed. I have seen all manner of things happen to electronics on cars, and never know when it will happen.
