When your vehical throws a code and you replace the defective part, you must clear the code or the ecm will still recognize it as an active code.

2001 Montero Sport up stream oxygen sensor has failed. My check engine light came on and tried to drive vehicle at night and my lights went dim and the truck quit.

This has nothing to do with you O2 sensor. You have more than one problem. An O2 sensor will not cause what you just described. It will cause a check engine light but not the dimming of lights and a stalling issue. Check your charging sytem ( battery and alternator )

Where is the location of throttle position sensor

Throttle position sensors are usually located on the throttle body, on the opposite side of where the accelerator cable is attached to your throttle body. Please let me know if you need more assistance, good luck.

My 2000 mitsubishi montero sport every time i put it in reverse it jumps and it feels like it wants to peel out

If you have a check engine and possibly srs light on and your vehicle is seemingly slow to accelerate in dirve you could possibly be looking at a faulty shaft speed sensor or transmission range sensor

Service engine soon light went on on my mitsubishi montero sport 2000

you can take it to any autozone or advanced auto to get the light scanned but before you purchase whatever sensor they tell you to get, find a good mechanic that can give a second opinion. Often a sensor can be thrown off by another faulty sensor that may not come up during scan.

Service engine soon light went on i replaced the gas top with a new one and its still on

That light isn't there just to tell you your gas cap is loose. There are literally thousands of codes that can turn that light on. Many retail auto stores like Auto Zone, will scan your computer for free and tell you what codes it has. Write down the codes and post them here. They may try to give you advice there but consider they are getting paid eight bucks and hour and you don't even have to know the difference between a tire and a headlight to work there.

Bad throttle position sensor

TPS is right on the throttle body The shaft that operates the inlet butterfly passes through it. There are two torx screws holding it on. There is no adjustment so it is a bolt on item. (think it's about $50)

Failsafe engine mode Asc Trac Not Available

I had the same issue...I went to Auto Zone and got a diagnostic...Came back that my Throttle Position Sensor was faulty...However after taking it to the dealer, and paying 135.00 for THEIR diagnostic...You can't simply buy the sensor. You have to buy a new Throttle Body at 902.00 + Tax atleast here in Vegas. I hope it's not your problem, but go get a FREE diagnostic first.
