My check engine light kept coming on so I had it checked out and it was a bad throttle position sensor. I purchased and installed this unit and it works perfectly.

Comments about BWD Throttle Position Sensor:

So far so good. It all began with a check engine light caused by an OBD II P0122 fault code that I could not clear and erase. Then after engine start my truck suddenly began idling erratically and would not accelerate. But then, just as suddenly, the engine rpm surged as though the gas petal was being held down but without my even touching it. Since P0122 is a throttle position sensor fault code, I went ahead and ordered one and installed it. I've been driving my truck every day for well over a week now with no problems.

              This was a direct replacement for my 2003 Oldsmobile Aurora 4.0. It was easy to instal and matched perfectly. I have heard horror stories about variances in these that necessitate the ECU having to be recalibrated but it worked perfectly out of the box.

              GMC 4.8L HAD ROUGH IDLE AT DIFFERNENT OPERATIING TEMPERATURES AND UNDER DIFEERENT DRIVING CONDITIONS. PURCHASED ALL GASKETS TO REPLACE NOTORIOUS INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKETS. READ A THREAD ABOUT THE TPS CAUSING LEAN CONDITIONS AND ROUGH IDLE. SURE ENOUGH ONCE I REPLACED TPS THE TRUCK NOW IDLES PERFECT AND ENGINE RUNS LIKE NEW. WILL REPLACE INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET AT A LATER DATE IF NEEDED (HOPEFULLY NEVER)

                  No, Kayle! This BWD Throttle Position Sensor (Part No. EC3048P) does not fit your 2007 Chevrolet Malibu LA. The exact Throttle Position Sensor for your vehicle is unavailable online. However, I would suggest that you visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store to check the availability of this part.

              • Q:

                Your website listed this as an exact fit for a 2003 Chevy Suburban. Got it home and realized it was the wrong TPS. The exact fit for the 2003 burb is the Dorman 977-000. As you will see, they are completely different sensors altogether.

                  Hi Cindy, I'm happy to help you! The throttle position sensor is located on the throttle body housing opposite of the throttle linkage in most of the models of Chevy Malibu. I would recommend purchasing a Chilton or Haynes Repair Manual specifically for your vehicle, not only will it show the location, but you'll find it handy for many more projects on your vehicle.

                  A:

                  I'm happy to help, Joe! The throttle position sensor on your 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 4.3L V6 is located on the throttle body. The throttle body is on the top of the engine with the air intake tube connected to it. It will have the throttle cable connected to it as well.

                  A faulty throttle position sensor will typically illuminate the 'Service Engine Soon' or 'Check Engine' light. It could also cause bucking, jerking or hesitation when accelerating, surging at idle, sudden stalling of the engine or a sudden surge of speed when driving on the highway.

                  The idle air control valve is an electrically operated valve that controls the amount of air that bypasses the throttle plate in cars with a fuel injection system. A faulty idle air control valve may also cause the engine to stall, the engine to shut off when the A/C is turned on, excessive racing noise from the engine and/or the check engine light to illuminate.

                  A repair manual for your truck may provide diagnostic procedures for these parts. If you need additional diagnostic assistance, I suggest consulting a certified mechanic.

                  Hi Jimmy, I'm glad to help you! The sensor is on the throttle body located on your 2007 Chevy Cobalt is held to the intake manifold by four bolts. Locate the four bolts for the engine splash shield on the passenger side of the engine, one bolt points toward the ground and the other three toward the passenger wheel.

                  Hi North Carolina, glad to assist you! In most cases, remove the air cleaner that covers the throttle body and locate the accelerator linkage. Just opposite the throttle lever, on the opposite side of the throttle body, the throttle position sensor is located. It bolts over the throttle plate shaft and has three wires connected with a snap-in plug. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                  Hi David, great question! The throttle position sensor may be the possible cause of the problem on your Chevrolet Cavalier. However, the answer to this is perhaps a bit more complicated than you think. 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 or be the problem.
