Hey all,
quick question,
is there a way that you can test if the TPS(throttle position sensor) is working properly.

How hard is it to remove and replace if needed???

thanks all

OK. Grab yourself a multimeter. Go to volts (V).
Probe the leads in the tps plug (plug is still connected to the tps) .
Red lead in the middle of the plug.
Black lead in the bottom of the plug.
Turn the ignition on.
Closed throttle should read 0.7-0.8 volts
Fully open throttle should read 4.4-4.6 volts
When increasing the throttle slowly the voltage increases.
