                        Hi Chris, great question! The answer to this is bit more complicated than you think. This needs an expertise to determine. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not solve or be the problem.

                    • Q:

                      I have a 95 Blazer with 4.3 vortec. When I climb a hill it pops and looses speed. If I ease back on the throttle it begins to pick up speed and power . It also surges at times with my foot in the throttle. Do you think the position sensor needs replaced? I just pulled the plenum and there is no leaks at regulator or spiders. Thanks.

                        This could possibly be the problem. However, with out the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer.

                    • Q:

                      My car sometimes idles rough when first started & sounds like a tractor. I have to let it warm up completely even when it's warm out or it will sputter & hesitate. It will usually runs good for a couple days then after that runs like I said above regardless if I allow it to warm up before driving & it also has a rough idle. Is it a good possibility this sensor is the problem?

                    • Q:

                      My '96 Izuzu Rodeo is having major difficulty with reving up while driving or stopped. It has become very dangerous. The RPMs will stay at approx 2000 while driving. Many times I can drive miles without using the gas pedal. At times, if the engine will not idle below 1500 RPM, I am unable to stop my vehicle. In these circumstances I must put my vehicle in park, where the RPMs will increase to as much as 8000. At this point the engine must be turned off and allowed to sit for approx. 5 minutes for the issue to resolve. Is the Throttle Position Sensor responsible for this issue?
