Changing TPS - help!

I did a search for this and came up with nothing so....

For those of you who have changed the Throttle Position Sensor on their truck, how did you do it? Do I have to remove the TB to access the two stupid screws holding the thing on? [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Yup thats what i did. Make sure you get a new gasket to replace the old one off the throttle body.

I'll second that. It's the easiest ay I've found, even though it sucks.

Re: Changing TPS - help!

That's how i did mine in the freezin cold last winter. I was to cheap to buy a new gasket. I know but consider; I've had my uppperintake off about 4-5 times since i first got my first truck whose motor is now in this truck. I just recently bought a new one the last time i pulled it off cause i got sick of piecing the old one back together like a friggin jigsaw puzzle. It was in about 3 pieces and it still didn't leak.

Well if it leaked I guess itll affect it a little. Your air to fuel mixture would be off. But im not sure how bad it would be.

Gasket

It would just be an tiny unmetered vacuum leak, which would probably raise the idle, but wouldn't be severe enough to affect top-end mix. It would have less effect than a break in one of the small hard vacuum lines.

[img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] I was hoping you guys wouldn't say that. Friggin Haynes manual doesn't say anything about removing the throttle body. [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] 86convert - I feel your pain. I'll be out in the cold today doing it. Thanks guys.
