Please Refresh Me On Swapping The Types Of Tps Sensors...

Recommended Posts

....I've been searching thru the post , I remember someone telling how to use the more common TPS in place of the expensive one (that I now need to replace). Anyone bookmark it ?  I'm running an '88 6cyl/5spd , parts store showin mine uses the "not in stock, we gotta order that one" that cost so dang much.

Your thinking of the auto and manual TPS sensors. The manual one is hard to find and over $100 alot of the time, the auto one is common and cheap, maybe $30. Rock auto has both, and you can use both with no issues. 


This is what you want: http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=951161&cc=1181584


When connecting it to a manual, you only use the oval 3 prong connector, and cover up the other one. That would normally send information to the auto tranny.
