Where is the throttle positioning sensor located? I either have the wrong part or the wrong spot.
The TPS is located on the throttle body at the end of the throttle cable. Your Tracker comes with a 2.0 4 cylinder and a 2.5 6 cylinder. The TPS is different on both engines. Did you get the right TPS? It’s a black phenolic cased component with a wire lead. It moves in conjunction with your throttle cable.
According to NAPA it’s the right part. But going by your description it’s the wrong part. The part I have is a black case, but it doesn’t have a wire lead. It seems like it just plugs in but it doesn’t fit anywhere that I can see. I was trying to do this myself to save money.
Sorry…I may have confused you. The lead stays attached to the vehicle. It’s plugged into the TPS. I just added the wire lead to help you find the component on the throttle body. What engine do you have? This is a TPS for a 6 cylinder: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/catalog/parts/partsShelf.jsp?displayName=Throttle+Position+Sensor¤tPage=1&categoryDisplayName=Fuel+Delivery&navValue=14900136&itemId=136-0&parentId=49-0
Thanks, We went to autozone site and found part. NAPA sold me wrong one. I had the right spot. I’m so proud of myself.
Great. Thanks for the feedback…we seldom get it.
NAPA. Not Always Properly ASEd? Only one I could think of.
I’m sure missileman meant the people, such as himself, who just hang out here a lot and post answers/feedback for people’s questions. People show up all day everyday, post questions about problems issues, they get replies/suggestions/advice from a certain number of regulars on these boards, and then never come back to tell anyone what all came of a problem.
So the “we” who hear about a lot of problems and make a lot of guesses about them are always really happy when someone actually comes back to post the resolution.
Oh, this is my first time here. Thank you, we. From, us.
