Throttle position sensor? Probably needs that.


It MIGHT start and idle, but that is about all it would do, you could not rev it up, if you tried, it could pop back and cause some damage to other components.

It's not the engine I'd be worried about. The auto trans also uses it to make shift points. You need the tps, why wouldn't you want it?
