The replacement TPS fits like factory, a new seal is provided in the box. With a T20 torx this can be replaced in about 10 minutes. (T20 in my case double check the size before starting the replacement) No setup or settings just remove the plug, then the 2 screws and slide the old TPS out of the throttle body. Install the new gasket on the new TPS then insert in the throttle body while twisting back and forth the align the sensor with the throttle shaft. Then reinstall the 2 screws and the plug. You're ready to go!

I purchased the tps due to poor performance from the factory unit in a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0. The tps sensor was easy to install but immediately threw a diagnostic code of P0123 saying there was to much voltage at the sensor. Several attempts were made to reset the code using a Snap On scan tool with no luck. A second tps was acquired with the same results. Tried to drive the Jeep with horrible performance, high revving, lack of power and stalling. Purchased another tps from another source and immediately after installing it the check engine light went out. The Jeep is running properly with no check engine light. I would not recommend this product for use unless you enjoy replacing it several times to get it to work properly.

                • 1998 Jeep Wrangler 40l

                Comments about BWD Throttle Position Sensor:

                Perfect fit for my 1998 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4.0L. While sitting idle at a stop light the engine over-reved for no apparent reason. Then, while driving, the engine would frequently cut out as if the key were turned off. Searching the Internet I found that this was symptomatic of the throttle position sensor (TPS) going bad. I purchased this TPS and swapped out the old sensor. I coated the electical connector with dielectric grease and my Jeep has been running well ever since. I especially like the warranty that came with this product.

                  Easy direct replacement part. It solved a surging problem at slow cruise that developed when I had a fuel system cleaning service performed. I suspect that it damaged the original TPS.

                            Hi New Guy! Few common symptoms of a faulty Throttle Position Sensor: An unexplainable bucking and jerking in the vehicle. Sudden idle surges. Sudden engine stalling without any apparent reason. Hesitation while accelerating. Sudden surges in speed while driving on the highway. Intermittently flashing of check engine light for no apparent reason. 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.

                          For a 1998 Jeep TJ with 2.5L motor, is this just a bolt-in repair or does the TPS need calibrated or a special adjustment when installing?

                            I'm glad to assist, MrFixit! The BWD Throttle Position Sensor - Part No. EC3167 does not need adjustment. At idle, TPS output voltage should be greater than 200 mV. At wide open throttle, TPS output voltage must be less than 4.8 volts. This is measured at the center pin.

                            Hi Lisa, the throttle position sensor could be the possible cause of the problem on your Jeep Grand Cherokee. However, 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.
