K20 K24 K Series Throttle Position Sensor TPS For Honda Acura RSX Type S K Swap
The function of the throttle position sensor, aka TPS, is to supply information to the car's computer about the position of the car's throttle. It contains electro-mechanical moving parts which are prone to wear and tear, which eventually add to the cost of car repairs. Malfunctioning of a TPS can result in improper data being fed to the car's computer, which monitors engine performance, with respect to the fuel efficiency of the car. A damaged, malfunctioning TPS can cause a variety of symptoms.
Symptoms of a Defective TPS:
- Bucking/jerking of the car.
- Idle surging of the car.
- Sudden stalling of the engine.
- Hesitation/Delay while trying to accelerate.
- The sudden surge in the car's speed while driving on the highway.
