Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Throttle Position Sensor:

Olds 98 3.6 liter threw an error code of the TPS. Bought a new one and had to change that one out for another which I have determined was bad also. My vehicle has voltage, ground, but when hooked to the new tps there is no ohms or voltage adjustment on the middle blue return wire. Am looking for another brand.

      Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Throttle Position Sensor:

      Took out the old TPS WITHOUT removing the throttle body as reccomended by many sites in my 1990 Buick Electra Park Avenue with the 3.8 liter motor. Put the new one in and added a new pigtail (cable connector). Works like new again after dialing in to the correct voltages at rest and also at full throttle.

      Defect

      By 

      from Wooster, OH

      Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Throttle Position Sensor:

      After installing, car had intermittant start/run problems. After hours of testing other components, found that the NEW TPS was defective.
      After flicking the throttle with my thumb the ohm test readings would vary way below the specs, and only occasionally settle back to the base settings. Returned it and the replacement has been working ok for 9 months now.

          A:

          Hi Cad John, glad to help you! Here are the few symptoms of a faulty Throttle Position Sensor: An unexplainable bucking and jerking in the vehicle, sudden idle surges, sudden engine stalling without any apparent reason, hesitation while accelerating, sudden surges in speed while driving on the highway, intermittently flashing of check engine light for no apparent reason, difficulties in changing gears, and a drastic drop in fuel economy. However, I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

          A:

          The throttle position sensor tells the computer how far the throttle has been opened, which is vital to maintaining the proper air fuel ratio and timing advance.

        • A:

          As stated before get a manual and ask if you have a question however if you get a haynes manual be advised that the voltage setting that is listed (.55 +/- .05) is WRONG my car (1991 olds cutlass ciera sl with the 3.3 motor) required a setting of .38 +/- .02 the higher number caused the computer to think the engine was running faster and ruined more parts than I care to remember . It wasn't til I got a membership to ALLDATA that I got the proper info

      • Q:

        I am having a problem with hesitation ONLY when the outside temp is in the upper 70's or higher and I've driven for a half hour or more. Could my throttle position sensor be causing this?

          A:

          No, the TPS would cause it to happen all the time. Check the ambient air temperature sensor and the intake air temperature snesor.
