Hi there. It is possible to only install the throttle position sensor on a 2007 Ford F150. The problem typically comes with programming it with a different throttle body; which is why the auto parts store recommended the throttle body w/sensor as most people don’t have the right equipment to complete this service individually. It’s also possible that the throttle position sensor may not be the cause of whatever symptoms you’re having. It’s probably a good idea to purchase a new throttle body and TPS to make the installation easier and less likely to have connectivity problems.
