A perfect replacement for my 97 Ford Ranger 2.3L. It does turn in a clockwise direction and, lucky for me, that's the direction my factory one did. It fits perfectly and is an exact replacement for OEM. For anyone else with a Ranger with the TPS on the rear of the throttle body (right up against the firewall), it's FAR FAR easier to just take off the entire throttle body. 4 clearly visible bolts versus trying to blindly work a tiny screwdriver with no space. Plus it gives you an opportunity to clean off the throttle body blade. Seems like more work, but will probably end up being quicker...and certainly less frustrating.

The TPS - EC3025 fit the carb body OK, but the rotor moved in a clockwise direction from the stop... The orginal Ford rotor moved in a counter-clockwise direction.. The EC3025P immediately threw an error code(P1120).. .. I was in a bind, needed it today, so I had to purchase the right one from a competitor, at very nearly the same price.. Installed it and all is well...

    Comments about BWD Throttle Position Sensor:

    did not fit my 99 ford explorer.I returned it and turns out i need the one from a 2000 ford explorer.the sensor on the 99 part turns clockwise.My sensor turns counterclockwise.The 2000 explorer throttle position sensor turns conterclockwise, and fits perfectly.It may depend on if you vehicle was made in the beginning of 99,or towards the end of the year for the correct part. the part itself is very easy to change. Just unplug the wires, and there is only two screws.good luck.uall

                This item rotates opposite the one I needed to replace. It is not usable on a 2003 Ford Taurus V6 DOHC. Parts numbers are very confusing. Not compatible even though on-line website said it would work.

                  • Q:

                    I have a 2002 Ford Expedition with the 5.4 Triton. While idle the RPMs will go up and down about 75 RPMs. Also while driving at around 30-40 MPH it will shift down for a second then back up almost like I put the vehicle under strain and it needs to shift to a lower gear. This happens on flat ground so it should not be needing to down shift. Can this product fix this problem. If not what could it be. I have recently changes all the plugs and boots and I am not getting any codes for this problem.

                      A:

                      Hi TJ, tricky question! The throttle position sensor and or even the shift solenoids could be the problem on your Ford Expedition. However, the answer to this is perhaps more complicated than you think. This needs a mechanic's 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/be) the problem.

                      The throttle position sensor could possibly be the problem. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer.

                      The Throttle Position Sensor is located on the throttle body, opposite the throttle cable. There will be 3 wires going to the TPS, a 5V reference, a ground, and an output. There is no need to hook the TPS to a computer.
