Many people claim that replacing the throttle position sensor is not a difficult task to undertake, especially if you have the right tools, because it is very easy to find, remove and therefore replace.

• To undertake this kind of repair, the first thing you are going to need are a selection of torx bits, (screws that have a small star in the center).
• You will need to remove the air filter housing.
• Once you have done this, you will see that the throttle position sensor is screwed into part of your throttle's body. This will be easy to identify because of the wires running into it.
• The throttle position sensor will be adjustable and set in idle position, but you will be able to remove it easily.
• Remove it with care and load the new throttle position sensor in its place.
• Follow the instructions that came with the new sensor if you are unsure what to do or be sure to ask someone at the place where you bought it from.

Replacements can be bought at the majority of automobile stores. Ask one of the store's team members if you cannot locate one as they may have to order it in stock for you.

They can also be found on a lot of websites that sell replacement parts for cars. The only problem with this method is that you have to be 100 per cent sure that you are buying the right throttle position sensor for your car, otherwise it will not work.

One website where you can buy this type of throttle position sensor can be found through this link:

If you are really unsure how to go about a repair such as this one then you shouldn't hesitate to take your car to a mechanic and ask them to do it for you. Although this may end up costing you more it is better than trying to undertake the repair yourself and possibly doing more damage.

you are not helpful. Shame on you for attempting to shame others who have to fix their own care because they do not have the money to pay a mechanic.
