      A:

      Symptoms of a bad throttle position sensor: Acceleration Problems: A car that seems to hesitate or stumble during acceleration may have a faulty throttle position sensor. AA1Car.com explains if the sensor sends the wrong throttle position message to the engine, the engine will not add extra fuel to the mixture until the oxygen sensor feedback circuit steps in to correct the imbalance. This momentary miscommunication will cause the car to hesitate. Sometimes a sensor may develop one or more dead spots in its response, so as the potentiometer passes those spots, the car hesitates. Sensor wear often causes a dead spot just above its normal "idling" position. Intermittent Problems: If your car idles unevenly or hesitates intermittently, regardless of acceleration, the throttle position sensor may simply have a loose connection. This loose connection sends out multiple signals, confusing the computer with indications that the throttle keeps opening and closing. Poor Initial Performance: If your car engine seems to perform roughly from its first day on the road, the throttle position sensor may suffer from an incorrect initial setting. Throttle position sensor settings must conform to factory specifications precisely, and normally a new car has had its throttle position sensor adjusted to within 1/100 of a volt. A car that may seem like a "lemon" may in fact need only a tiny adjustment to the throttle position sensor setting to run perfectly. Troubleshooting: A device called a multimeter can detect incorrect voltages issuing from the throttle position sensor. As described by the Electronics Club website, a multimeter typically includes an voltmeter, ohmmeter and other capabilities. Wells Manufacturing Company recommends attaching the meter to the sensor without the engine or ignition engaged. If you open the throttle slowly by hand, you should see a smooth rise or drop on the multimeter's voltage display. Testing all three terminals on the sensor can either isolate or eliminate the sensor as the cause of the throttle problem.

      A:

      Yes, with reference to your inquiry on the BWD Throttle Position Sensor -part# EC1036P, a bad throttle position sensor would cause the engine to idle high all the time. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.
