Look on opposite side of throttle body where linkage is connected. It connects to throttle plate shaft at opposite end. Yes you can do it, but pay special attention to how it comes off when you take screws out that hold it on. Hold your finger against it until you've got a good grip on it, some of them will turn slightly from tension, a quarter turn or so, and must go back on same way.

2004 chevy can spark plugs cause scanner to read tps on a 6.0 l gas 2004 chevy silverado


It shouldn't. The TPS sensor is voltage based on throttle position. If the plugs are bad, you should get a separate cylinder misfire code only. If you are getting a TPS code, it is likely the TPS. Remember too, it is an electronic TPS, so there is a sensor on the accelerator pedal assembly that it talks to. Make sure that's plugged in. What you can do is with the vehicle in the on position (not running) - push the pedal all the way to the floor a few times. Also, clean out the throttle body and ensure there is no gunk preventing the throttle body from opening smoothly and all the way. Good Luck.

Replace throttle position sensor in 2011 Chevy Malibu 4 cyl.


If you had the job done at a garage, take it back. You paid good money for a part that wasn't bad. Lets take yours for instance..A TPS code. Probably read from a code reader. Replace the TPS and still have the code. There are 3 things to check for any sensor, any code. The sensor, the wiring , and the computer/PCM. A code reader only gives you a place to look, NOT the solution..

02 sensor? Throttle Pos Sensor?


Likely the TPS.. those cars were notorious for chaffing or breaking wires. The 02 code is likely a result of the bad TPS. Or, having a bad tps may have even clogged the sensor.

A THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR (TPS) is usually located on the butterfly spindle so that it can directly monitor the position of the throttle valve butterfly.
Throttle actuator control(TAC), that code comes from that part of the system too.

03 chev silverado vortex motor v8, 6.0 my p0220 code # came up when tested. do i need to replace the throttle position sensor and i need to know where it is...in my repair book said this one is located on...


The TPS or throttle position sensor is located on the throttle body. It is usually on the right side. There are two wires in a weather pack connector that clip to it. Disconnect the wire connector then remove the two screws ( torqs bite type). When you remove the TPS watch that you don't remove or lose the O ring that seals the throttle shaft. If you lose the O ring this will cause a vacumm leak.

1990 Chevy Lumina showing codes 12 and 21. What are they?


code 12 flashes any time trouble codes are pulled without the car running. It is normal and think it has something to do with not receiving distributor pulse.

Code 21 has to do with the TPS (throttle position sensor) voltage being to high. You'll need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to check this out. Unplug the TPS sensor and check for 5volts on the grey wire, and make sure the black wire has a good ground. If those check out plug the sensor back in. Back probe the blue wire. you should see around .5 volts with the throttle closed. The voltage should go up smoothly as you slowly open the throttle. At wide open throttle the voltage should be around 4.9 volts. If any of the above three are not true I would suspect a bad throttle position sensor.

On a 04 camry with 2.4 ltr engine, can I replace just the throttle position sensor or do i have to replace the entire throttle body? The engine code said faulty throttle body.


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!!
