Follow the intake tube from the air box to the throttle body. It is mounted on the throttle body, on the opposite side of the throttle cable.

Replace throttle position sensor in 2011 Chevy Malibu 4 cyl.

If you had the job done at a garage, take it back. You paid good money for a part that wasn't bad. Lets take yours for instance..A TPS code. Probably read from a code reader. Replace the TPS and still have the code. There are 3 things to check for any sensor, any code. The sensor, the wiring , and the computer/PCM. A code reader only gives you a place to look, NOT the solution..

This one could be any of them. If you tackle this yourself start with the cheapest and move to the most expensive. The other way is to take this in for a diagnostic, pay them for that, and then fix it yourself knowing what it is for sure.

What tools would be needed to replace a throttle position sensor on a 1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette 3.8 V6 van?

The two screws and the electrical connector are all that need to come off the TPS to remove it. I dont know of any other componants that you need to remove to get to it. The screws are either a 7mm socket or a T15 or T-20 Torx bit. It is normally on the backside of the throttle body, so on the van you'll have to "crawl-in" to reach it.

The TPS only goes on one way, just line up the "D" shaped slot on the sensor with the throttle shaft. Don't over tighten the screws, snug is good. You don't want to break them.

Need location of TPS sensor . Autozone employee told me that the code that was reading the computer was for the TPS sensor replacement. I don't have an idea where it is

The TPS is located on the opposite side of the throttle cable on the throttle body. If you don't know what the throttle cables are, get a friend to sit in the van and push the gas pedal down until you see something moving. it will be on the opposite side of the movement
