You only need general tools. It is located beside the throttle body. It would be much easier to take off the throttle body first.

My 2005 F150 with 5.4 goes to Idle while driving. I pull over, shut it off and restart and runs no problem. Check engine light is on and had the code checked. Its P2104 - Throttle actuator control system -...


For this problem, I looked at the Code results. There are a few parts which can cause it, and in some cases the Dealer will need to install a Data Logger if microwave signals are suspected.

Ford has made modifications to this Throttle body, and parts were backordered for a redesigned throttle body. This may be covered under a Silent warranty and a one on one request for factory assistance.

Or you may try to replace the cheapest part, the throttle position sensor, Several people on the F150 forum changed out that part and it worked. Myself, even changing the sensor, I would want the best throttle body made for my truck. So rather than a patch, if a free factory replacement were offered, I'd take that.

Contact your favorite Dealer and see what they will do for you.

My 89 4.0 A/T 4wd cherokee gets to 20mph then bogs down


What are the RPMs at when it's at 20 MPH?
I would personally start listening for vacuum leaks. That's a quick easy fix.
The 89 is notorious for problems with the TPS sensor (throttle position sensor) and the idle air control valve thos are also cheap easy fixes.
What do you mean by bog down is there any shuddering involved?
Shuddering this could point to a short on the engine block.

Parts:
1. Throttle Position Sensor - $ 55.44

Tools:
1. Scan Tool

Procedure:
1. Locate the OBD data link connector (DLC). Refer to your owner’s manual for the specific location.
  • Tip: The OBD-I data link connector is usually located in the engine compartment near the battery or the fuse box. The OBD-II connector (post 1995 cars) is usually located beneath the instument panel next to the steering column.
2. Turn your key to the“ON” position. Do not start the engine.

3. Plug your scan tool into the OBD data link connector. Turn on the scan tool and select the appropriate steps to read the diagnostic trouble code (DTC).

  • Tip: The OBD-II diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is a 5 character alphanumeric code. The first digit is a letter that indicates the component group, the second digit is OBD mandated or manufacturer specfic, the third digit is a subgroup, and the fourth and fifth digits define the component and basic problem.
  • 4. Locate the throttle position sensor.

How to replace the Throttle position sensor


If you know what the throttle valve is then you can replace the sensor, it is over 1 end of the throttle valve shaft , it is held in place by 2 screws, they may be Torx style screws, not sure on your model.
