I had RPM surges in 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT. Used this product and it took the surges away. This also smoothed out my acceleration. I've had it on for a month so can't answer to it's long term durability. It does have a lifetime warranty which is a plus. It took me about 30 minutes to change out. The back screw was the hardest to get out. But if you are a diy'er you can do this.

Comments about BWD Throttle Position Sensor:

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7 2 wheel drive automatic Transmission was shifting all over the place, and idle was all over the place. When I would roll up to a stop sign I could feel the tranny upshift to 1 st gear. As I continued to drive it I got a PS0068 code mass airflow sensor knew that wasn't right. Purchased Install new TPS with coupon , problem solved.

    Comments about BWD Throttle Position Sensor:

    The sensor quality looks and feels even better than the original part. I replaced this sensor along with the idle air control valve and it solved the problem of erratic engine idling (surging) and cutting off every now and then.

        What is the warranty on this item
        Asked on 3/28/2014 by Scott

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Hi Scott, good question! This part comes with limited lifetime replacement warranty. The lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.

          With respect to your inquiry on the BWD Throttle Position Sensor - Part No. EC3208 a bad throttle position sensor can cause idling issues. However there are other few minor issues as well which causes stalled/rough idling. 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.
