Throttle Position Sensor Replacement

Photo of throttle position sensorThe Throttle Position Sensor, often abbreviated as “TPS,” is a small sensor that is used by internal combustion engines to control the throttle. It can open or close the throttle depending on how much air you need to let in to the intake manifold while you’re accelerating and dictates to your fuel injector just how much fuel your engine needs. If your fuel efficiency seems to be dwindling or your car is stalling, it is time for a service.

Signs Of TPS Failure

The throttle position sensor is important because, despite it’s relatively small size, big problems can arise if it’s not working properly. If the TPS is not able to control the opening and closing of the throttle, it can throw off your air to fuel ratio, which can increase your emissions and start a rough idle in your engine. Since your TPS manages your fuel injection, your car acceleration could fail or have speed limitations when your throttle position sensor fails.
