can i change the tp sensor myself
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi. If you are an experienced technician this job is simple and not that difficult. The throttle body will also need to be relearned after it is installed so it will operate properly. The relearn may need to be done with a scan tool so that would require a professional mechanic. If a scan tool is not needed then it could be done right at the location. If you have the proper mechanical skill set you can replace your throttle position sensor yourself.
