The throttle pisition sensor on all vehicles is always located in the center of the throttle body . Lets call the front of your car north and the back south if your engine is front to rear and not inverted . I don't want to get to confuseing here . So there is a pivit that the throttle plate rotates on kind of like a pin that runs through the center of it . The throttle pisition sensor is always at the end of this pin or pivit at a 90 degree to the opening and closeing of the throttle plate so every time the plate moves so dose the throttle pisition sensor. And there not hard to replace you may need some speical tools but they are small and not expensive like torquex or star bits but two screws hold it on basicly

The TPS sensor is going to be located on the throttle body. Starting at the air intake box, work your way toward the engine, following the air intake hose. When it connects to the throttle body, you will see a small sensor that has wired plugs in it and to it. That is you TPS sensor. They are easy to replace, usually only a couple of screws, or nuts holding it on.

I need to know where on the motor the trottle position senser is located on a 2006 kia optima lx v6

All throttle position sensors, have to be on the throttle body,
on order for the computer to recognize throttle position & convert
to throttle plate angle %

Any code you get, on an OBD2 System, doesn't mean to change parts

The codes are used to follow manufactures charts, to diagnose
the code fault, somewhere in one of the vehicles systems

On all vehicles if you follow the air intake, from the filter to the
intake manifold,you get to the throttle body

Given your question,I suggest you leave the diagnosing to
an experienced person

Why thats throttle position senser goes bad on my vw golf.

It might not be broken but need to be realigned. Once in a while the default position for idle is lost and needs to be re-learned by the ECU using a scan tool. This is called throttle idle position adaption.

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.
