A tps sensor is a throttle position sensor and is located on the throttle body. it has a weather proof connector and can be purchased at a auto parts store like Napa, Oreills,etc for minimal cost. it should have 2 wires and has 2 screws/bolts that hold it in place it is black in color.

Replaced the motor in my 96 sonoma and now it wont

Did you hook all of the grounds up, and did you hook all of the connectors up to the engine? If you do not have spark then I'd be looking at the coil connectors, the grounds for the coil, and the crank sensor. Also look at the harness real good. You may have pinched or broke a wire somewhere.

2000 gmc sonoma service engine light on and flashing. Bogs down during start up and while sitting. Also going through gas really fast.

sound like the O2 sensor or PCV... take the car to autozone and they will use the ODB reader on it for free.I suspect one or the other sensor. How many miles do you have on it?
