1996 ford ranger throttle position sensor location
The throttle position sensor (TPS) is a black plastic component that is screwed onto the throttle body using two machine screws. You will see a two-wire harness plugged into the TPS. The TPS should not be replaced unless it actually fails standard diagnostic tests. If you were led to the TPS by a "trouble code" that referred to the sensor, please note that trouble codes are not a diagnostic and thus the code alone is not a reliable basis to condemn that component. Codes represent clues ONLY so be sure that any part you plan to replace is actually tested before condemning it. If you have already obtained a written, conclusive diagnostic, or viewed TPS sensor output on a scan tool that confirms the TPS is faulty and you desire replacement YourMechanic does offer throttle position sensor replacement on a mobile (at your location) basis. If instead you want a diagnostic performed to identify the root cause of any engine fault, please request a Check Engine Light diagnostic. If you request either service, the responding certified mechanic will diagnose your engine and then perform only work that is substantiated by the diagnostic results. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic because we want you to make the most of your repair dollars and help you to get the best possible results.
