Throttle position sensor help
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hello Everybody...im new here and would like some help please if possible finding this
Throttle Position Sensor (identical with mine) only numbers on sensor are 0169 6220
my problem is in the manual,workshop book,catalogs,says it should be a TH-20
it looks the same in every shape and form..apart from this lever/arm attached by a screw..
this came straight off my 1987 jeep wrangler YJ no probs....no pulling wiggling hammers involved...2 torx bits came out as sweet as a nut....but i cant match it anywhere...
it seems my arm is either the wrong way up...or on the wrong side?
(or is there a match for this).....can i undo the screw and somehow change it perhaps
id be ever so gratefull if somebody could help me with this...

I had a hard to find part that none of the auto parts stores or junk yards had so I went to the jeep dealer and told them what I needed and they had it the next day.If your unsure wheather this is oem part just tell the dealer what yr. your jeep is and they can pull up every part on your jeep/engine.hope this helps...russ

Call the dealer, get an OEM part from them. Being your old one in with you to compare. Problem solved...

Yep, the dealer out here was stumped by my jeep. Had to buy both parts and return the one that did not fit. Long story short I got the part

No Not Solved...far from it.....This Jeep Must Be Purified With Fire...

Looks like you have the Cherokee TPS on your jeep, that is probably why no one can find it. Once you told us what engine you had it was pretty easy to find it.

Did you take your meds today buddy? LOL :hide:

Vroooom 04-22-2013 08:20 AM

Well...here is your first problem :
You've got the wrong size ball for that trailier you're backed up to in the photo.

Sorry gang, just trying to throw a little snicker into the fray.


One question...are you the original owner?
If every resource you go to is telling you the same thing....then the odds of them all being wrong is a decreasing probability.
It could be that you dont have an OEM part or possibly even an OEM engine.
And that changes the whole game.

LOL wish I could buddy, just had major surgery on my left arm. Turns out working for Uncle Sam can be hazardous to you health. I'd help you get it on the road if you lived close to me. It is a nice looking jeep, but like women it's usaully the real good looking ones that give you the worst time!

Have you had many problems with it? What I recommend you find a local Jeep club (one where the guys actually work on their jeeps).

We could all use a few wrenching/tow buddies from time to time. It sucks when cars break down on you. I know .... my Jeep is my DD and it has given me a hell of a time, I have been under it more than in it.

Wish I had a few spare vehicles to fall back on sometimes. What city do you live in, I'll see what jeep clubs are in the area.

Bottom line: We have all been where you are at, but it's worse when it's your only ride.

Someday a fellow Jeeper will be having a simular problem and you'll be able to walk him through it. Hang in there

:punk:

LOL .. It's your world Richy ... I'm just a Squirrel collecting Nuts! :D


Be safe and don't burn your eyebrows off.

What are the Local Laws about Vehicle BBQs in your country?

Out here the cops don't like them much.:bottom:

Ill Try ....But It Will Be So Much Fun!!!!
It Should Take The Cops About 45 mins To Get To Me....But That Would Only Be On A Murder Wrap....So Its Pretty Much Carte Blanche
OF Course The Birds will Be A Little Upset...Thats Something I Do Care About..But We Have So Much Open Land...It Should Be Ok!!!:angel:

Just Tried To Put A Pic Of the Farm Up...But I Must Have Used To Much Bandwidth.....Just A White Screen....Never Mind ! You Get The Picture!!:banghead:

Squirrel 442 04-26-2013 03:25 AM

Richy,

You still alive and kickin? Did you get the Jeep fixed up or get some better meds?


Hope you got it fixed up, rather than turning it into a heat source!


Did the part I found fit your motor?


You left us all scratching our heads, hope you did not get committed or put in jail.


Give us an update, when you get some time. :thumb:

LOL ... Richy your new nick name is Paint Chips! :eek:

You should try out for the tv show Survivor, they need people who want to start fires. Plus you are Bat sh@t crazy and people like to watch that too.

Good luck, my man sorry to hear about the jeep.
