The throttle position sensor (TPS) is an important car part that provides information to the engines computer regarding the cars throttle. The computer needs this information to change the air/fuel mixture. It is a variable resistor that changes resistance based on the position of the throttle valve. The TPS contains electro-mechanical moving parts. The throttle position sensor is usually mounted near the throttle body and converts the throttle valve angle into an electrical signal.
The function of the TPS is to measure the throttle position and the rate of throttle position change. If the TPS malfunctions it can cause the engine to idle inconsistently. If you
feel any jerk or sudden surge in your car's speed while driving on the highway then it is a symptom of a detective throttle position sensor. The defected TPS must be fixed with a new replacement part as
soon as possible. Failing to do so will lead to further damages to other parts of the vehicle
so you are recommended to replace it with a high quality part. At Car Parts Warehouse,
we sell only the worthiest, original equipment (OEM) and after market replacement parts.
