Recently wrote the question about the power steering fiasco on another post. Fixed that and came to find out why the car was still not starting was the throttle position sensor got filled with gunk and ps fluid. Ive done a lot of research and am finding that I cannot install just a new sensor but have to buy the whole throttle body? I guess this is true on '06 forenzas and later. Yet you can buy just the sensor alone from most auto parts stores for about $40. I was originally trying to just remove the sensor to clean it out, as we got the car to turn over a few times. With this, there seems to be security screws keeping the tps in that dont work with the traditional 5 star bits, they seem to be 4 star with a pin in the middle. So A) is it possible on the fornza to replace just the sensor, and B) what kind of bit do I need to get it off. Thanks much guys!
have the same problem?
