Hello and thank you for your question,

What was the reason you replaced your throttle position sensor?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I was getting code p2106
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Okay with the amount of miles you have on it you are going to also need to clean the throttle body due to sludge build up. To do this remove the negative battery cable and then the TB and give is a good cleaning with a soft cloth and some carb cleaner. Once you have done this reinstall it and then reconnect the battery cable and start the engine and allow it to idle for 15 to 20 minutes to allow the computer to re-learn the closed throttle values. See the TB removal steps in the link below. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view them. Give this a try and post back if need be and we can work from there.
