The TP sensor is mounted on the side of the throttle body. It looks like this:Throttle Positioning Sensor on a - drsinister69_6.jpg Here is a picture of the location on the throttle body:

I have an 2004 Chevy Tahoe 4x4 4.8l with code c0237. How hard is it to replace the throttle position sensor?


C0237? That is an erratic rear speed sensor fault. Is your abs light on? The speed sensor may be unplugged, wire harness damaged, sensor may be failing. The tps is part of the throttle motor assembly. Very expensive, but very easy to change.

What does a throttle positioning censor for an 05 ford focus look like


I suggest you google 05 ford focus throttle positioning sensor. This sensor keeps you air intake throttle at the proper position when the engine is cold and changes position when the engine has warmed up. to locate the sensor, remove the hose that comes from the air filter housing to the engine. the hose you removed was connected to the air throttle. you can manipulate the position of this throttle by having someone push the gas pedal down slowly while you watch the throttle move. notice that the gas pedal cable is connected to the mechanism that opens and closes the air throttloe. also notice that beside this mechanism, you have an electric throttle positioning sensor. Pay close attention to the existing throttle positioning sensor before you remove it if you are planning on replacing this sensor. because if you do not install the new sensor in the same degree that the old one was in, you will throw the calibration off. word of advice. buy some throttle cleaner from your local auto parts. turn the car on with the air filter to throttle body hose off and have someone push the gas pedal down slightly to keep the engine from turning off. spray the throttle body cleaner til all the black crud comes off the inside of the throttle body. this dirty crud is what was making your throttle stick and not working properly.

Engine Problem


first thing that comes to mind would be the throttle positioning sensor, or the mass air flow intake sensor on the air intake hose assembly.Symptoms of a mass airflow intake sensor would be very poor acceleration or engine dying when gas pedal is mashed hard. Throttle positioning sensor can give you and irradical idle while sitting still. You might want to have a scan to diagnose the problem.

It sounds to me your TPS (throttle positioning sensor) is in need of replacement. This is located on the throttle body.
