I need a throttle...

I need a throttle linkage rod for 1997 dodge also a fuel tank sensor

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you certain it's the fuel pressure sensor that's in need of attention? What about the fuel rail? Have you checked it yet?

No i was told it is usually the sensor in the tank.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '97 Dodge?

2500 2wd club cab long box .

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have a mechanic and i will help him,we haven't started yet.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The throttle linkage broke and was welded but needs a new one so it can be adjusted.
