TO REPLACE THE TPS DO I HAVE TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE THROTTLE BODY?

2006 Suzuki Forenza • 120,800 miles

All gears light up overlapping in the led next to the odometer. The car****** hard while in motion and the rpms rev up but the car moves like a turtle and occasionally (if moving out of park) the car won't go into gear without a hard*****. Transmition replaced at 36000 miles. Computer reads the check engine light as a TPS problem but do I have to purchase the whole throttle body or just the sensor?

There were not any specific instructions for removal of the TP Sensor. They are usually just an electrical connection and three screws that hold them on. Sometimes they are held on with rivets and you may have to drill them out. I found a diagram I am attaching showing its locations and it is an easily accesible place, so it should not be hard to do.
