Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've got a throttle position sensor problem. I
bought the new on but am having trouble
reinstalling. Is there some trick to reinstalling the
throttle position sensor

The throttle body shaft needs to align to the I.D. of the TPS, so you may have to clock it to fit on the shaft, then screw it on into position,


Also do you have the right TPS? There is one for the SOHC and one for the DOHC, and the configuration is different in the I.D. of the sensor.
