Question about Chevrolet Tahoe
Checking to see replacement cost of throttle body sensor in 2007 z71 chevy Tahoe. Check engine light comes on and dealership says my throttle body sensor needs to be replaced at a cost of around $750.00.
No it should't cost that much. Its just a sensor that unplugs and probably has 2 screws holding it in place. Go to Napa and buy one then pop the hood and look around until you find what looks like the part you just bought. Then replace it.

That has alot to do with the price of the pump, i know there expensive. The thing to do is call an auto parts store and ask what the price is for a pump, once you know that, then you can call around to shops in your area and get there price or labor rates, and that will give you an idea what it will cost. I know its alot of calling but its the best way, so you can guard aginst being riped off. It should not take a good michanic more than 2 to 3 hours to chg. one.

That normally means that you have a issue with your gas cap try replacing your gas cap first then diconnect the negative terminal of the battery for about three minutes to clear the memory and start the truck again

If it is a code P0226 I would not consider it a safety issue. Throttle position (TP) sensor C/accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor ? - range/performance problem Possible Causes: Accelerator cable adjustment, TP/APP sensor Throttle position (TP) switch C/accelerator pedal position (APP) switch ? - range/performance problem Fig. APP sensor mounting
Accelerator cable adjustment, TP/APP switch
This might only be an adjustment issue--make sure the throttle cable isn't so tight that the throttle cannot fully close.
If the cable is OK, it is probably the accelerator position sensor under the pedal.
There are procedures for testing the unit that I will paste below if you care to try them.
If you just want a shop to fix it, the part is about $50 and labor should only be 30 minutes.
Operation The sensor is made up of the two individual sensors within a single housing. Each sensor has a unique functionality to determine pedal position. The APP system along with the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is used to calculate and control the amount of acceleration and deceleration through fuel injector control.
