I have a 97 ford probe 4cyl. I'd like to adjust the tps with a voltage meter, but want to be sure I do it right! My check engine light isn't on but car idles rough. I've had the tps replaced in the past, so i know i don't need a new one. I've had open headers, cold air intake installed in the past also. My car runs great, just the idle is off a bit. I believe with all my MODs my TPS needs re-adjusting! Can you help me? Thanks,Lon

I need to replace the throttle sensor. however, the replacement part I got at the autopart store looks NOTHING like anything on the throttle body or anywhere near it. Could they have changed the type of throttle body and sensor in the middle of the year and I have one of the vehicles assembled in the first wave of production? What needs to be done to replace the TPS at this point? Do I have to replace the entire throttle body?
