tps

hey guys
i have a 2000 civic sir and was wondering if the throttle position sensor can come off and be replaced if so how do i take it off? it looks like 2 bolts holding in place but there are 2 white plastic things on top covering the head. someone said i might have to change the full throttle body to replace the tps???
thanks

or you could take the trottle body off and drill out the rivets (most USDM TPS's are rivetted on) to get the old one off, then get some screws/bolts that will fit to hold the new TPS on. The only thing is that you can't buy just the TPS sensor from honda, you can only get a whole new throttle body, so you'll have to find a used TPS, and make sure to calibrate it properly when installing the new/used TPS sensor.
Overall, its a fairly simple job to do.

Omni Power sells just the TPS.
Look on Honda-Tech or ebay

by adjusting it on the car. To get them off i usually put a groove in the rivet and spin them off with a screw driver.


I will gladly setup your tps for you at a great price
