The sensor is on the side of the throttle body, it has three wires going to it, it is connected to the throttle blade so when the throttle is opened it reads that info and sends it to the PCM.

My hyundai accent gl 2002 came up with the code po335

That is a crankshaft position sensor malfunction. Replace your crankshaft position sensor. Your car may be running rough and in some cars a failed CPK sensor will not allow the car to start.

My 2002 hyundai accent hesitates when i accelerate

Numerous possible causes. First thing I suggest you check/inspect is the Throttle Position Sensor. This sensor is located on the throttle body and has a three-pin connector connected to it. You'll want to find out if the sensor (it's a potentiometer, a rheostat) has any poor contact points inside. This can be done by using an analog ohm meter. If you don't know how to do this, ask someone who does to show you. What you'll be doing is checking to see if the 'resistance' in the potentiometer changes erratically as you rotate the throttle opening, indicating there are bad spots in the pot. If this is the case, the pot is sending these signals to the engine computer, and the computer (ECU) uses this voltage/resistance signal to compute the engine load expected by the driver's input on the accelerator pedal.

If I understand you correctly, you have a bad TPS (throttle position sensor). nothing more. Replace the TPS... the oil cap has nothing in common with the TPS... that's a fact!
