The throttle positions sensor is mounted on the right side of the intake chamber ( opposite side of where you see the cables). If the car still does not start the engine may be out of timing, pistons may not have compression (blown head gasket), or the fuel pump is malfunctioning.

Well first off a bad TPS would still alow the car to start. Could you be more descriptive on what the code was? (Pxxxx) Also when you mean it wont run are you saying that it cranks/turns over but you cant drive it at all?
