Your throttle body is at the opposite end of the air tube that takes air from the air filter to the engine.

The TB sits on top of the intake manifold.

Where is the Engine Throttle Position Sensor located in my 2007 Cadillac DTS

It is located in the throttle body assembly . Your vehicle has electronic throttle control .
Throttle Body Assembly
The throttle body assembly contains the following components:
The throttle blade

The throttle actuator motor

The throttle position (TP) sensor 1 and 2

The throttle body functions are similar to a conventional throttle body with the following exceptions:
An electric motor opens and closes the throttle valve.

The throttle blade is spring loaded in both directions and the default position is slightly open.

There are 2 individual TP sensors within the throttle body assembly.

Oh yea it has two TPS - throttle position sensors ! An you have to replace the whole assembly !

Where is the throttle body located? How do we clean the throttle body?

Throttle body is located where the hose from the air filter box meets the engine. Big black hose. Remove this hose from the engine side and this will be the throttle body/plate assembly. If it is black/oily inside, clean with carb spray and a toothbrush to remove any dirt/deposits

Throttle body location and replacement

the throttle body is located at the end of the cars intake pipe. I am not familiar with the layout of toyotas engines but all throttle bodies are at the end of the intake pipe. its a big roung pipe usually about 4 in thick. you might have to take out the engine cover if there is one present. the throttle body is usually grey or siver in color and you will know it when you see it.

Hi, the tps is located in the throttle body. The Throttle body is located in the upper left hand side of your engine at the very top. It is part of the throttle body assembly and must be serviced as a single unit.

I have a 2006 chevy aveo. i was told the throttle position sensor was out. i bought the sensor. i cannot find the location on the engine where it goes. is there a photo available which would show the...

Easiest thing to do would be to follow the air intake tube to the throttle body.( big round rubber or plastic that goes from front area of car to engine and is usually held on with a clamp where it attaches to intake of throttle body) Right in that area, you will see your throttle linkage/cable etc, and where it pivots when gas pedal is pushed. Look opposite side of that housing and you should see the throttle position sensor.

Where is the trottle position senser located on my 1995 Ford F-250

The throttle position sensor is mounted on the throttle body.
Follow the big hoses from the air filter housing back to the engine and the first part on the engine you come to...... is the throttle body.

Buy the throttle position sensor first and match it to the part on the throttle body to identify the part you want to change.

Engine revs high

I've seen before where the IAC sensor gets dirty. The IAC sensor is located on the top of the throttle body. If you refer to the throttle body as a clock, and picture the egde closest to the front bumper is 6 o'clock then the IAC sensor would be located at 12 o'clock. I think in a 02 GC it should have vaccum lines attached to it, and it's held down by couple of phillp's head screws. (I think) Take it off and clean it with throttle body cleaner until all the black gunk is out of it.
If you are not sure where the throttle body is, find the air filter box under the hood located on the driver's side lower corner. There will be a plastic "tube" going from that box to the top of the engine. Take this tube off and any part that connects to the top of the engine. You will then see the throttle body. It would also be beneficial to clean the throttle body out as well. (It only take a minute and it can only help your gas miliage.) You can find throttle body cleaner at any auto parts store, or Walmart or Target. Let me know if this helps, thanks!
