1. Remove the air cleaner lid and makeup air hose. Loosen the clamp and relocate assembly.
2. Remove the negative battery cable.
3. Disconnect electrical connector from the throttle position sensor.
4. Remove throttle position sensor mounting screws.
5. Remove throttle position sensor.

Full Size Image

Fig. 66 Throttle Position Sensor





1. The throttle shaft end of the throttle body slides into a socket in the TPS. The socket has two tabs inside it. The throttle shaft rests against the tabs. When indexed correctly the TPS can rotate clockwise a few degrees to line up the mounting screw holes with the screw holes in the throttle body The TPS has slight tension when rotated into position. If it is difficult to rotate the TPS into position, reinstall the sensor with the throttle shaft on the other side of the tabs in the socket of the TPS. Tighten mounting screws to 6.2 Nm (55 in. lbs.) torque.
2. After installing the TPS, the throttle plate should be closed. If the throttle plate is open, install the sensor on the other side of the tabs in the socket.

3. Attach electrical connectors to the throttle position sensor.
4. Install the negative battery cable.
5. Install the air cleaner lid and makeup air hose and tighten clamp.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
