Where is the throttle position sensor located? And can it be replaced without taking it to a shop?

Disconnect the Throttle Position (TP) sensor from the wiring harness.
If reinstalling the same TP sensor, mark the position of the TP sensor by scribing a mark on the sensor and throttle body.
Remove the TP sensor retaining screws, then remove the TP sensor.
Position the throttle position sensor so that the wiring harness is parallel to the venturi bores. Rotate the TP sensor clockwise to align the scribe mark (from step 2).
Install the TP sensor retaining screws, tightening to 17.7-26.5 lb. in. (2-3 N-m).
Connect the TP sensor electrical connector to the harness.
NOTE: The TP sensor is not adjustable.
