throttle position sensor question

My throttle position sensor went bad on my car and is in the shop now, more about that in my thread on "high reving in neutral" But my question is, i just ordered a focus central TB and was wondering if that will have any affect on the throttle position sensor? I hadnt thought about that until the sensor went bad and was just wondering if you have to do anything with the sensor when you put the new throttle body on?

thanks

nick

I don'y know about the TB, but if you have an aem cai, it may have sucked water causing the tps to go bad. I know from experience because it happened to me twice. Luckily for me, the dealership covered it under warranty.

Good luck.

no, it wont affect the tps as long as it is all done properly. actually I believe you should be able to replace it your self if you go buy the part and have the screw drives and/or sockets if neccesary.
All the tps does is tell the computer how far the throttle is open or close so it has an idea of how much air is coming, plus the signals from other sensors such as the MAF (Mass Air Flow). You should be just fine with the new 65mm TB if that is what you are thinking.

I do have an aem cai and ive never been in any real deep puddles but i guess it couldve sucked alittle up when the filter gets wet when its raining. And also, do you even have to take off the tps when you put on the new TB?

thanks
