It's only two bolts and a plug.

To find it.. look on top toward the rear of your engine compartment. Find where the cables rotate the butterfly valve in the throttle body. On the opposite side of where the accelerator cables go into the throttle body is the Sensor..

If you have the replacement in your hand, it will help you identify what you need to remove..

Just a wild guess repplacement ????


In 7 yr of Hyundai, I do not recall replacing a TPS myself.... been scanned ? Got code(s) ? What you got ?

Tossing parts could compund what it is you trying to repair.. and can get costly at that.

Dear Sir
My car is Sonata model 1994 automatic with 4 cylinder.
I have a problem in THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR (TP SENSOR) adjustment.
I have done the adjustment just like the instructions that is mentioned in the Service manual.
I used a digital voltmeter to measure the voltage between connector 1 and 3.the voltage is 480-520 mV.
I also disconnected the negative connector of the battery for 30 seconds.But it didn’t work and the car is not idling well now.
I have RPM fluctuation while idling.in Idling mode the RPM is about 1100.

I would greatly appreciate if you help me about this case and tell me the correct way for TP SENSOR adjustment.
Best regards.
