The PCM controls the EGR valve, so the EGR position sensor tells the PCM what position the EGR valve is in, so it can control the EGR valve and ake other necessary adjustments.

I have not heard of such. There is an ERG valve and sensors for oil and smog but not just for position.


The Throttle Sensor responds to the accelerator pedal movement. This sensor is a kind of potentiometer which transforms the Throttle Valve position into output voltage, and emits the voltage signal to the ECU. In addition, the sensor detects the opening and closing speed of the Throttle Valve and feeds the voltage signal to the ECU.

The EGR position sensor is on the top of the EGR valve. The valve is on the front, passenger side of the engine.


exhaust gas recirculation sensorIt is a sensor that is mounted to the EGR valve. It moniters the position of the EGR valve and sends that info to the ECM.


There is no such thing as a cam sensor valve. The camshaft position sensor is powered by the PCM, there is no individual fuse.


The egr position sensor is part of the valve. It does not have a flow sensor.


There is a throttle position sensor mounted to the throttle body. That's the place where the air intake valve sits near the top of the engine. Look for the throttle butterfly valve; on the end of the butterfly valve shaft should be a little sensor with wires connected; that's the throttle position sensor.


A throttle position sensor is a sensor used to monitor the position of the throttle in an engine. The sensor is usually located on the throttle-body spindle so that it can directly monitor the position of the throttle valve butterfly.


The EGR position sensor is located on top of the EGR valve. Has an electrical connector attached.


The 2001 Infinity intake valve timing control position sensor is located on the back and of the head. The sensor should be labeled as such.


I'm not a mechanic / technician but I believe the camshaft position sensor on a 1999 Ford Explorer XLT , with the 4.0 liter SOHC , V6 engine is ( on the drivers side valve cover , near the engine oil fill cap )


Unless the EGR position sensor is shorting out the 5V reference, NO. If you suspect the sensor, simply unplug it & see if the starts.

Located on the top front left (drivers side) valve cover. Vehicle production date is 04/03


An EGR (Exhaust Gas Re-circulation) valve position sensor sends a signal to the ECM (Engine Control Module) what the EGR valve position is. This is to confirm that the EGR has responded to a command sent from the ECM.


The egr position sensor is part of the EGR valve. On a 5.7L it is on the pass front, on a 4.7L it is on the driver rear.


You have an idle air control valve and you also have a throttle position sensor. They are both located and the throttle body.


The short runner valve is the square item sticking out of the end of the intake manifold. The code refers to either a failed actuator/position sensor or a wiring problem from the pcm to sensor.


It measures how far open the EGR valve is. It is built on the valve.


The 2001 Ford E GR valve position sensor is attached to the firewall, in the engine compartment. The sensor will be on the drivers side of the engine compartment.


The egr position sensor is made into the egr valve. Look for the egr valve and you will find a plug with wires plugged into the egr valve. These wires are for the position sensor and they go back to the ecm ( engine control monitor)< computer> James= 15 year Mazda tech just a tip= with engine COLD,reach under valve and press on plunger and see if it moves freely(not easy) but freely. Hope this helps.



No, the knock sensor is not the same as a throttle position sensor. The knock sensor is used to determine if the engine is knocking caused by too much spark advance for the octane rating of the fuel being used. The throttle position sensor tells the engine computer what the position the throttle valve is in to determine gasoline flow .
