You will need an ohm volt meter which is cheap these days at any reliable auto parts/Radio Shack store. The setting is 1.5 volts. The TPS is adjustable when the set screws are a little loose. Black wire is negative The other two wires are Positive. You can set this TPS fairly easy with the ignition on. The ohm meter will come with instructions how to use when purchased

This happened to me, it was the sensor. From the sound of your problem, it sounds like the air flow sensor (relatively cheap fix)

How do i adjust the idle in my 1996 buick lesaber?


There is no idle adjustment on a 1996 Buick LeSabre. The idle speed is computer-controlled. Incorrect idle speed can be caused by many things including a faulty Idle AIr Control (IAC) motor, vacuum leaks, or malfunctioning sensor inputs or circuits such as the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). If it is not idling correctly, the engine control system must be properly diagnosed to find out the reason why.

94 buick lesabre 3800 engine, stalls after 10 mile drive and will not start till cools. replaced TPS, Fuel pumpand filter, cam sensor, crank sensor, and ignition control module.


next time it won't run after it heats up, spray or pour water in crank sensor and see if it will start. I have seen new crank sensors go bad.

How to install throttle position sensor 94 buick lesabre


locate the throttle body and on the side match your new T.P.S sensor, its usually held on by 2 screws, torx kind, so you might have to buy that screw driver since it is not common. remove and disconnect the old one and install. if its adjustable you need to set it, with a voltmeter. if its not just make sure it engages and slides in fine.

Where are the throttle position sensor and the mass air flow sensor located on a '87 buick lesabre limited ???? thank you.


find the air filter and work your way towards the top of the engine. There will be a large black rubber hose that goes to an aluminum colored square shaped block with four bolts, one on each corner of the square shaped block. there will be a cable going to the throttle. on the opposite side of the cable will be the throttle position sensor with a plug in harness with two or three wires. The mass air-flow meter should be just behind the T.P.S.
