Assuming you mean the throttle position sensor. The throttle position sensors tells the engine computer when the throttle position has changed, it adjusts fuel flow to match the throttle opening. If the throttle position sensor fails then the engine computer has to depend only on the MAP sensor to define air flow thus how to adjust the fuel flow. I would expect then that response time would be slower than when the throttle position sensor works correctly. On a Chevy Celebrity it might also turn on the check engine light and post either a code 21 or a code 22.
I just had the same problem. You have to replace the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). I paid about $25 for the part at AutoZone. I changed it and WOW! My truck runs beautiful!
The throttle body injection is non adjustable and controlled by the pcm (computer) the throttle position sensor or TPS is adjustable but is normally set correctly at the factory. If you have changed it, there should be instruction on how to reset it properly
Yes, my grand am had that problem a week ago, changed out the sensor and it runs like a champ!
Most likely it's a vacuum leak.
I had the same problem, so I changed the throttle position sensor and the camshaft sensor as well...it worked for me, hope it works for you too. also change the map sensor that was the reason the light was on
Throttle Position Sensor. I changed mine and my truck doesn't stall anymore, and it does better on gas. That is if you know how to drive standard and are not just stalling it yourself.
Logically, no co-ordinates were specified with the changed position so it would seem that the changed position has not moved.
Camshaft Position Sensor Under hood, center, upper engine area, mounted on front of intake manifold and behind Throttle Body assembly. It is a one bolt attachment. You will also note that it is located right under the throttle cables on their way to the Throttle Body Assembly. I just changed mine very easy to do. Just need to remove throttle cables from Throttle Body Assembly and remove the one bolt. I bought mine at CarQuest for $31.
could be your throttle position sensor or check and make sure butterfly flap is closing properly.
Yes but it wouldn't run very well
