Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette

2 Answers

Where is the TPS sensor loocated on a 1999 oldsmobile silhouette van? I am attempting to do this on my own. The van does not accelerate normally when I pull out. Once I am on the freeway or at higher speeds is seem to be fine. Once I come to a stop light and try to accelerate it does the same again. Just the initial acceleration from a stop. I was told it could be this. Got a good deal at junk yard to see if it is before looking at transmission.

Follow the accumulator cable from the firewall to the intake manifold/throttle body air tube.

It will end right next to the TPS.

TPS is a 3 wires electronic unit.

Please rate my answer is it's helpful to you.
