it can cause the car not to start.
It is a part of the throttle body. You have to replace the throttle body if faulty.
The throttle position sensor determines the amount of throttle used when the engine is running at various speeds. If the sensor is faulty, it can be replaced by ordering a new part.
faulty throttle position sensor?
PO122 indicates the throttle position sensor (TPS) is faulty
That is one possibility for that complaint
Misfire is usually caused by faulty wires or spark plugs or both. Throttle position sensor failure generally causes poor response to the throttle. That is poor acceleration, slow to return to idle and rough idle.
Faulty throttle position sensor
I had a similar problem with a Toyota where it was sending the code for Throttle Position Senser I replaced it twice It ended up being the computer that was faulty [[Hope this will help
There are a few reasons. crankshaft position sensor, faulty fuel pump, fuel pump regulator, throttle position sensor, oxygen sensor. Need to have it diagnosed.

Yes, my grand am had that problem a week ago, changed out the sensor and it runs like a champ!
The possibilities can be many. It can range from a malfunctuioning fuel pump, to a bad throttle position sensor, to faulty fuel injectors. First I would check the throttle position sensor since this is the cheapest part, and also the easiest to replace. The throttle position sensor tells the computer how much air and fuel to put in the engine. If it is messed up it can cause hesitation, stalling, transmission buckoing, etc...
The bad idling may be due to a faulty Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). Have the computer scanned for trouble codes to confirm before replacing.
P0120 Throttle Position Sensor P0325 Knock Sensor This is codes that are telling you that the TPS sensor and the Knock sensors are faulty.Replace them.
AnswerBY CHANGEING IT OR SIMPLY GOING FOR A DIAGNOSISThere are several position sensors (crankshaft, camshaft, throttle, EGR). Any one of them would illuminate the "Check Engine" light and the code(s) would lead you to the faulty one.
because the throttle linkage is suck or the carburetor is faulty
Check the wires to the maf. it is between the air filter and the throttle body, if it is disconnected or faulty in some way what you are describing will happen
well if the throttle isn't getting gas to the engine it would suddenly stop because of no fuel. On the other hand if the faulty throttle is like some of the Toyotas lately and gets stuck to the floor, your car would suddenly work way too well! :o
I'd suspect a loose, damaged or unhooked vacuum hose/line around the upper/lower intake. Or a faulty throttle position sensor.
P1128 TOYOTA - Throttle Control Motor Lock MalfunctionPossible causes, Faulty Throttle Control Motor,Throttle Control Motor harness is open or shorted,Throttle Control Motor circuit poor electrical connection
Hesitation can be caused by several things: 1. A faulty throttle position sensor might cause hesitation. 2. A faulty MAP or MAF sensor might also cause hesitation. 3. A problem with the engine control module might cause hesitation.
Sputtering engine may be caused by one or more faulty components. It may be from spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor. Similar faulty component affecting the air-fuel mixture like a bad oxygen sensor, throttle position sensor or engine temperature sensor.
The mixture is electronically controlled by the computer via a throttle position sensor (TPS) tha is mounted somewhere near the carburetor throat. The sensor may be faulty and needs to be replaced.
The engine is flooding,, probably due to a bad/faulty throttle position sensor (TPS).
