P 060 E code,what does it mean?

On the I6 engine it's a problem with your TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). These can be checked using a meter. Can cause problems with shifting, stalling, not idling well. One note, the TPS is integrated into the throttle body it'self, so you need to replace the whole throttle body just to get a new TPS. Very easy for someone to check or replace, won't set you back too too much.

2002 nissan pathfinder hesitates on exceleration. have replaced o2 sensors on both sides , plug , ect. replaced timing sensor. what else could i check?

It sounds like you have a faulty TPS (throttle position sensor) sensor, it is an easy fix, and you can get the part from any auto parts store. The TPS sensor is located on the throttle body, and it is held in place with 2 screws and has 1 plug to it. Before you change it, make sure that it is plugged in. Mine did the same thing and somehow the TPS had came unplugged, so I plugged it back in and the issue went away.

I have a 1991 legend it idols high even in park or gear

When an issue such as this occurs, you have a faulty TPS (throttle position sensor), they are inexpensive, and easy to replace. The TPS sensor is on your injection system's throttle body. Follow the air intake hose from the air cleaner box back to the throttle body. There you will see the TPS, it is usually held on by a couple of screws, and has at least 1 plug, but may have 2. You can pick up one at just about any auto parts store.

My 1993 chevy 3/4 ton 4X4 wont shift? Its a new transmission and i also just put a new torque converter in it! Speedometer don'w work also!

If your transmission is part electronic, its the tps throttle positioning sensor. if its a diesel it will be on the passenger side of the injector pump, if it's gas same side. if it gets loose or goes bad you will have these problems. and your speedometer problem is likely the speed sensor located at the back end of the transmission. very easy to replace. the tps on a diesel not so easy. good luck!

I was told I need to replace my TPS in my 204 pathfinder. Is this a common problem in this model and make of Nissans? Could there be another issue that would make the mechanic think that this is the...

TPS Sensors issues, are common on all vehicles.
Yes, you could misdiagnose anything, on todays high tech vehicles,if you don't know the components,how they work and how they function in a system. If the sensor wasn't tested at all,you need a new mechanic. Even the pros throw parts at it.
If the TPS needs replacing, you can do it yourself. Go to the auto parts store and buy it. Look it up on NAPA site or others. About $75.00. Too easy, to pay someone to do.
A scanner code doesn't mean replace something. That was were you were going with your question. Always test,then replace. Test,not scan
Do this. Go to a shop,stand next to your vehicle, and have somone test it in front of you,not scan the system,actually test the TPS. Back probe it and put a Meter or Oscilloscope on it.

Replace tps switch

This is an easy fix. The TPS is on the drivers side of the Airhorn. The Airhorn is the metal part behind all of the Air filter plastic ductwork.

The TPS is mounted with 2 screws and has 1 electric connector. The only part to mess up is the matching of the slot and ridge on the Butterfly shaft. These contact areas must fit together before you screw the part into place. There is an elongnated slot for one side of the TPS and it allows for a slight RPM adjustment when tilted.

I do not know what problems you are trying to fix, but on V-8 engines there is a channel underneath the Airhorn that can get sooted up. Later it will code "Insufficent EGR flow". With the Ductwork off there are only 8 bolts to remove for the Airhorn and 1
$10 gasket to replace. People have reported their vehicles run much better after cleaning this channel. Good Luck on your repair.

Have been told the TPS is bad. NOw the car will

This can be the problem. The TPS is the part that replaces the Carburetor throttle. The TPS also regulates the spark and the timing advance.

This is a very easy part to replace. The part is on the drivers side of the engine behind the plastic ductwork from the airfilter. The TPS attaches to the metal hornshaped part. It has 2 screws and 1 electric connector.
The TPS is about the size of a Butane lighter.

If you go to Autozone or Oreillys they will scan you engine for free. They can verify your problem. After you fix your car you can return to Autozone and get your computer reset to remove the "Check Engine" light if it is on. Or you can remove a battery cable for 10 minutes and the warning will go away.

The TPS screws are on tight and you may need a pair of pliers to grip the screwdriver to turn it. But there is only a groove under the TPS to match up with a mating part on the Airhorn. Its about a 20 minute job to remove and replace. With Autozone or Oreillys scanning your car, you won't have to buy unneccessary parts.

1999 Mercury Cougar with automatic transmission, car was running fine, then it wanted to shift while driving, and the speedometer dropped to 0, with jerky motions. Same thing 3 years ago and dealer said...

ONe thing to check is that your throttle position sensor (TPS) is working as it should and that the electrical connections to it are clean and tight and that wires associated with it are intact. When your TPS starts misbehaving by sending the wrong position values to the ECU then erratic engine revs and associated difficulty in gear changes follow. TPS is a an electrical sensor mounted on the outside of the throttle body on the end of the throttle plate shaft. As the throttle is opened the shaft rotates. The amount of throttle (shaft rotation) is measured by a contact within the TPS sliding on a carbon track. The TPS has three electrical lines to it. One is at consistent low voltage ('throttle closed' end of the track) the other is about 5 volts ('throttle fully open' end of the track) and the third is the variable sliding contact which sends a voltage corresponding to the throttle position to the ECU. The TPS is pretty easy to check out with a voltmeter and you can read the variable out put by simply turning the throttle shaft by pulling on the accelerator cable. If the TPS needs replacing it is a pretty cheap and easy to do. Hope that helps some

2006 Ford Fusion SEL - TPS

The TPS is an easy part to replace. It has 2 screws and 1 electric connector. It is about the size of a butane lighter and attaches to the metal airhorn.

There is only a slight adjustment possible for this part. One end has an elongnated slot for the screw. Just look at where the old part was adjusted and replace it that way. The only thing you need to watch is aligning the slot on the throttle shaft with the indentation on the TPS.

While you are replacing the part, disconnect the battery on the POS cable and this will reset the "check engine" light on the dash. Then reconnect and drive your car.

Shifting out of first takes longer and feels rough

1-2 shift is delayed and harsh, may not shift into OD: Check TPS for smooth and linear electrical response over the entire range of motion. If not, replace.

Shift suddenly become very hard. When going from park to either reverse or drive it slams into gear. 1-2 and 2-3 shifts are also harsh. All gears seems to work. Problem may be intermittent: Check TPS for smooth electrical response. If the response is jumpy or erratic at all, replace TPS.

Extremely harsh shifts from P or N, normal shifts at WOT: EPC (Electronic Pressure Control) solenoid failed. Easy fix in pan. Fix as soon as possible or hard parts will eventually break.

Visit a transmission shop and have them put a line pressure gauge on the pressure test port and go for a drive to verify proper line pressure. Base pressure at idle in P,N,OD should be around 70psi and around 140psi in R. Max line pressure should be at least 190psi at WOT in 1st or 2nd, 225psi is optimum. If base pressure is low, trans or pump is worn out. If max pressure is low, check EPC solenoid. If reverse is slow to engage, and line pressure does not come up to at least 130psi in reverse, replace the boost valve with a Transgo 0.500" boost valve (easy fix in pan).

Here is just a few things that are common to what you have described, I would start checking the Wire leads to the TPS and TPS it self. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your Transmission running 100% again.
