Yes, hard to say why you are having so many issues, perhaps you just got a bad one. Are you sure the sensor is the code? have you gone down through the steps to eliminate other possibilities?


Did you change the throttle positioning sensor, If yes tell me if the check engine ligth went off and how much it cost the parts? thank you

just a note-I bought this car in Jan '08 with 44k miles. 2 days later the check engine light came on and the TP sensor had to be replaced.
