You should not have to remove the entire Throttle Body, the TPS should be at one end or the other of the Butterfly Valve that is controlled by the Throttle Cable. It should be held in place by 2 small bolts or screws.

SOURCE: 2003 CR-V Throttle Position Sensor replacement

Try cleaning the IAC (Idle Air Control valve.) by buying spray carb cleaner and removing the air cduct from the engine. On the fuel system side look into the hole and try to locate 2 holes on the side . With the engine running at about 1200 rpms, spray about 10 seconds worth of cleaner at the 2 holes. Turn the engine off. Let the cleaner soak. Then repeat procedure. The IAC can also be removed and cleaned if you wish.

SOURCE: on a 04 camry with 2.4 ltr engine, can I replace

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!!

SOURCE: 1994 chevy lumina van. It will start and idle but stalls when gas

you have a fuel pump relay that may be defective, or fuel pump or maybe the crank position sensor,a cam position sensor.the best thing is to have a scan performed with an obd1 scanner and you will know where to start the repair.

What does a throttle positioning censor for an 05 ford focus look like


I suggest you google 05 ford focus throttle positioning sensor. This sensor keeps you air intake throttle at the proper position when the engine is cold and changes position when the engine has warmed up. to locate the sensor, remove the hose that comes from the air filter housing to the engine. the hose you removed was connected to the air throttle. you can manipulate the position of this throttle by having someone push the gas pedal down slowly while you watch the throttle move. notice that the gas pedal cable is connected to the mechanism that opens and closes the air throttloe. also notice that beside this mechanism, you have an electric throttle positioning sensor. Pay close attention to the existing throttle positioning sensor before you remove it if you are planning on replacing this sensor. because if you do not install the new sensor in the same degree that the old one was in, you will throw the calibration off. word of advice. buy some throttle cleaner from your local auto parts. turn the car on with the air filter to throttle body hose off and have someone push the gas pedal down slightly to keep the engine from turning off. spray the throttle body cleaner til all the black crud comes off the inside of the throttle body. this dirty crud is what was making your throttle stick and not working properly.

How do i locate and replace throttle sensor


Locate your air intake. At the opposite end from where the air enters you will find your Throttle Body. There should be two sensors attached to your throttle body. The Throttle Positioning Sensor, and the Idle Air Control Valve.
On my vehicle the TPS is located at the bottom of the throttle body. The IACV is located on the side.
Since I cannot see your particular installation you will have to be the judge as to whether to remove the throttle body or not.
I have learned that it is somewhat easier to remove the Throttle Body in order to replace either of these sensors. And there will be less frustration with dropped bolts and or tools.
Also you will get the sensors installed properly and tightly, then you reinstall a single unit. Be sure to inspect the gaskets on the Throttle Body, and the IACV, replace if damaged in any way.

When i press accelerator engine is cutting ....


The van may just need a good tune up.

  • Replace the fuel filter
  • Replace the air filter
  • Replace the PVC valve
  • Replace Engine oil and filter
  • Replace the Spark plugs
  • Clean out the Throttle body with throttle body cleaner
  • Clean out the MAF sensor
This should help you get your van running 100% soon. If your on a tight budget, start with Cleaning the throttle body with spraying throttle body cleaner into the throttle body and cleaning up the MAF sensor with MAF sensor cleaner, just follow the instruction on the can. Then replace the PVC valve and add fuel injector cleaner in to the gas tank. This should help your engine running better and then you can do the rest of the work to complete the tune up. Good luck and keep me posted. If you go to Auto Zone, you can get all the things you need and they can scan your van for any DTC codes that may also indicate what issues your engine has.

Throttle position sensor location for 1993 ford E250 van


the TP sensor should always be located on the throttle body, opposite the control cable. it kinda looks like a mushroom and has a 3 wire connector attached to it. held to the side of the throttle body with 2 screws.

Pics of TP sensor here: http://www.rinis-automotive.com/shopimages/products/thumbnails/TP063_FINAL.jpg

Tps switch


The Throttle Position Sensor is a potertionmeter, and is connected to the throttle shaft on the throttle body it self. The best way to notice it, is the wire harness coming from the Throttle body on one side where the shaft is.

Good luck and hope this help.

Try replacing the throttle position sensor. I had the same problem in my truck. It would start and run for a bit but as soon as you let off of the pedal, it would die. Try it and see if it works.
