      • Q:

        I have a 2006 Impala LT with a 3.5L flex fuel. I got the REDUCED ENGINE POWER message with the CHECK ENGINE light and my car dropped to 20mph. I had the codes read which were P2135 and P2119. Do you think this would be a fix or would I have to replace the whole throttle body ? Also, I had a few people tell me that in my car you could not just change the TPS, that it had to be the whole throttle boddy unit itself ?

          A:

          Hi Kathryn, good question! All these codes refer to the throttle position sensors, which are part of the throttle body. First be sure to check all the fuses. There may just be carbon in the throttle, so clean that out good first with some carb cleaner. Then clear the codes and drive to see of that helps. If not, then you may have a bad throttle body assembly, a poor connection at the throttle, or a wiring problem ( a rare occurrence). Also please note that the TPS sensor is integrated into the throttle actuator assembly, and is not serviceable separately. The actuator must be replaced as a unit for proper repair. This really may need 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.

          A:

          With reference to your inquiry on the BWD Throttle Position Sensor - part# EC3045, the throttle position sensor on your 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GT would be located on the opposite side of where the throttle cable turns the throttle plate on the throttle body. For any further assistance, please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

      • Q:

        I have a 2000 Monte Carlo ss with a 3.8 v-6...I have a power surge between 1700 -2200 RPM , If I get past that RPM range it runs fine or if I accelerate hard it runs fine also. I have put a new Mass Air Flow Sensor and a new Map sensor in along with plugs , wires and fuel filter and it still does it , any ideas would be great.

          Yes, a bad idle air control valve may cause the throttle position sensor to go bad. However, I would suggest you to have a proper diagnosis from a certified mechanic to avoid intermittence.

          A:

          You could have a check engine light, transmission shift issues, bucking and jerking, idle surging, engine cutting off, hesitation when taking off, surge while cruising down the highway. There are many possible symptoms. You could have any one or any combination of symptoms, or even no symptoms at all except a check engine light.

          For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

      • Q:

        I have a 1996 Buick regal 3.8 cc V8 engine. It idles high even in the summer upon start up and can take up to 30 miles before it idles down. The only way to idle down is to turn the engine off and restart. It may take up to 3 tries to accomplish this. In the winter it is worse. Would a faulty throttle position sensor cause this.

      • Q:

        96 Camaro 3.8 at times it misses and cuts out and runs very bad when giving the car any gas or taking off or trying to accelerate. Scan showed a code of 102 (MAF). Replaced (MAF). Still runs bad!!! STill shows code of 102. Could it be the TPI and show a code for MAF. Or be the EGR and show a code for MAF. Had different car once that run just like this and it was the EGR.
        Every one in while the car runs correctly.. but most of the time not. I cruises fine... but once you attempt to give it gas it stumbbles and jerks untill you let up on the gas. Please help.

          Unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. We highly recommend taking your vehicle to a reputable shop to have them take a look at it to determine the cause.
