Presentation Description

Different sensors of the car have their own set of functions. Like them, the throttle position sensor also have their own functionality and usefulness. Thus, the throttle position sensor can controls the amount of fuel flow into the engine and monitors the throttle position from the shaft. Morover, the throttle position sensor of the car is damaged due to many factors. Go through the following slide to identify it more efficiently and easily.

COMMON SIGNS OF DAMAGED THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR IN CAR

Slide2:

Throttle position sensor(TPS) can keep your car running by controlling the throttle.

Slide3:

Main purpose of the sensor is to give information to the car’s computer about throttle.

Slide4:

For adjusting the throttle and fuel supply of the car, the sensor can senses the:

Slide5:

• Air • Heat • Light

Slide6:

But when it is damaged, it will send some incorrect information to the ECM.

Slide7:

Go through the points to identify the damaged throttle position sensor in car.

Slide8:

When driving the car, the engine can halt without any reason and warning signs. HALT ENGINE

Slide9:

Reason behind is, the TPS gives incorrect information to the ECM and halt the engine:

Slide10:

• At high speed • At low speed • At idle state

Slide11:

Due to the damaged throttle position sensor, idle condition is rising in the car. RISING IDLE

Slide12:

At idle condition, the ECM of the car unable to get the correct information.

Slide13:

If the ECM doesn’t get the correct information, the acceleration lead to gear transmission problems. ISSUES IN GEAR SWITCHING

Slide14:

As a result, you will notice incorrect shift points in car both early or delayed shifts.

Slide15:

Damaged TPS will turn on and off the check engine light randomly without any jerks. ILLUMINATED CHECK ENGINE LIGHT

Slide16:

Using a code reader, you can determine the failed TPS and its related components.

Slide17:

Most common signs of damaged TPS of the car is jerking or bucking during: JERKING ISSUES

Slide18:

• Hard acceleration • Under moderate loan

Slide19:

Reason behind the issue is, the ECM doesn’t get correct information from the TPS.

Slide20:

Sometimes, damaged throttle position sensor don’t let your car accelerate normally. ACCELERATION PROBLEMS

Slide21:

When you car face acceleration issues due to damaged TPS, you will notice signs like:

Slide22:

• Slow acceleration • Acceleration surge at high speed • Acceleration surge at low speed • Delay in acceleration
