I would buy it again!

I installed the TPS on my Ford F-150 pickup truck. Back in November 2014, almost two years ago and still working great.

TPS EC3025P not for my 2000 Sable 24V..

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 CARQUEST by BWD Throttle Position Sensor:

          Changed the sensor with little difficulty and at first the car was running like a champ. Over four days the symptoms are returning. The surges have begun again as well as the sputtering. Am going to buy another one and hope that it was defective like a previous reviewer posted, but three will be my limit. I'm starting to learn it is just better to buy original.

            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

                      Hi Brian, I'm glad to assist you! Many Ford TP sensors are not adjustable, same as the original part. The low voltage may be due to another issue. I'd recommend that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.

                      A:

                      Hi Big Bob, glad to assist you! There are may be a few symptoms like dirty MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor, vacuum leak, fuel pressure or delivery problem. Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary Clean the MAF sensor, inspect fuel lines for cracks, leaks, or pinches, fuel pressure at the fuel rail, check the fuel injectors. 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.

                  • 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 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.
