The ( TPS) Throttle Position Sensor is located on the throttle-body held by screws, should be 3 screws on a sunfire / cavalier application, with 3 wires coming out of it.

I recommend you test the tps. Procedure at the link below. The resistance should change linearly as you open the throttle. If it skips and jumps, it is bad.

The signal is on the dark blue wire. Just put your red probe in the back of the connector on that wire terminal and hold your black probe on engine ground.
