Where and what is a TPS on 1997 kia sophia 1.6 car idles to fast

TPS is the Throttle Positioning Sensor and it is attached the the throttle body. Yours is probably dirty. Go to parts house and get throttle body cleaner, remove air cleaner hose at throttle body, place a rag under the throttle body and block open the throttle plate and spray cleaner all around, let evaporate, reassemble and start car. Problem should be gone

I press on the gas pedal on my 2007 Kia optima and nothing happens. The engine is running

If you have drive by wire, It could be the TPS/gas pedal sensor or the vehicle is in limp mode. Have the codes read. If it is cable driven, the cable has popped off the throttle or the cable broke.

Do you have to replace the throttle body when you replace the tps

Hi OC, I'm glad to help!
OC, the best way I know to help you with this problem is to tell you to call the dearlership and if they offer the TPS without the Throttle Body, then yes you can replace the TPS only. NOTE: If they only sell the Throttle Body and don't offer the TPS by itself then you'll need the entire Throttle Body. If your asking if its OK just to replace the TPS the answer is YES, unless you have a problem with the Throttle Body itself like a vacuum leak or something like that. Hope this helps and have an awesome day OC.

Kia optima revs high uncontrollably

My suggestion is to take it back to the dealer and have them take a
look at it and have their computer talk to the computer in your kia optima.

Changed fuel filter and plugs,still sputtering.cant get up a hill

Hello! Two causes for your fault may both be present...I'm ranking them by probability...#1...Throttle Body Inlet is fouled with carbon deposits..Buy a can of spray throttle body cleaner...Pull air inlet tube...Spray and clean inside with a toothbrush...Test drive the Sportage...If problem still exist...Perform step #2...Do you have a multimeter (better if digital) and a wee bit of experience using it? ...The culprit may be the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS)...It is bolted to the throttle body and has a three wire connector...Wire colors are...Yellow/Green (+5 volts)...Green/Yellow (sensor ground)...And Yellow/Black (output)....Using two safety pins push the point into the rear of the in-place connector into the Yellow/Black and the other into the Green/Yellow...Set meter to read 5 volts...Clip the (+) meter probe to the Yellow/Black...And the (-) probe to the Green/Yellow...Start the engine...At idle reading should be less than 1 volt (.85)...Throttle up slowly as you watch the meter ...Voltage must rise smoothly without jumping...At full throttle reading must be 4 volts...If not ...TPS is defective...Send results...Guru...Saailer

Where is the throttle position sensor on a 2007 suzuki forenza

on a 2006 it is on the throttle body at the throttle plate. There are actually three TPS sensors in this configuration. One attached to the gas pedal. One attached to the throtle body And, one located inside the top of the engine block. The defective TPS sensor is removable with four screws. American Suzuki has to be a pain in the *** by selling it only as part of the entire throttle body.

Whare is the TPS sensor located on a huyndai 2007 2.7 L? Does the throttle body have to be replaced along with the TPS sensor. Is the replacement sensor rivited to the throttle body? Scott

on the hyundai the tps rarely fails. so check the pedal sensor on pedal of car. there are 2 sensors on this car, one on side of carburator, and one at accelerater pedal check this one first. the throttle body does not need to be changed to fix the tps. but usually it is located on the throttle body. at the throttle plate.
