Alright guys another question.
How do you know if your throttle position sensor is going out.
It is located in the throttle body, right.:confused
If yes is it the top one or the bottom one cause there is two sensors there.
Thanks guys.

Bottom or middle of the throttle body. You would throw a CEL if it went bad because thats how the car knows how much fuel to give it. The top one is the IAC valve.

Well its that my rpm are very low when the car is on idle its at less than 1000 rpms more like 500rpms (its not on the 1 if thats the way you say it, its like at the second line on the rpms?) could that be the problem the throttle position sensor. Also whats a CEL?
