I have a Pontiac Grand Prix GT, 3.8 Liter Motor. Two codes PO108 Map/Baro CKT High Input, and PO121 Throttle/Pedal Position sens A ckt Rng/Perform, according to the scanner. Did I need a Map Sensor and...


Change the throttle sensor first, and see if the map sensor is a victum. throttle sensor is similar to an old volume reostat, on some cars and everything else tries to do react, and everything errors out.... My bet is throttle position sensor... But you never know, it CAN be both, just usually not both.

After reading the trouble code I changed the throttle positioning sensor and now it gets too much fuel floods and will not start.


You have to zero out the postion sensor with an ohm meter. disconnect the plug for the TPS then with an ohm meter turn it to where ohm meter reads 0 ohms with throttle closed, next tighten screws then with ohm meter still connected open the throttle plate it should read 0 ohms till the plate opens and then should increase as it is put in wide open throttle postion, if it goes stratigh over to full postion then the swich is defective remove and take back to autoparts store. then restet the new switch, it is common to get a bad TPS every once and a while.

Hesitates -part throttle. 2-3000rpm.replace pump due to low pressure -replaced plugs cap, wires and rotor


try to test the postion of the pedal. You may have a dead spot on the throttle position sensor. Try at different speeds appliing the pedal to the same position. If its not speed or load related then it should show up everytime you have the pedal at say a given percent.

Tps , the throtle position sensor is causing my check engine light to show up. I just want to know where the throtle postion sensor is located.


Mounted on the throttle body. Try cleaning it before replacing. Follow the hose from your air filter box to the intake, the sensor will be right in that area where the hose connects to the intake throttle body. It should have a harness plug.

My 01 8.1L chevy will start then die. And


I would give a serious search for a major vacuum leak. Check around the intake manifold with an aerosol spay of starting fluid or a pentetrating oil. One of these will cause an affect of engine stumble or increase in engine speed. Check also all vacuum lines especially around the tree and all larger lines. Good luck my friend, Dana
