Default how to install a tps sensor on a throttle body

i just found out that the tps sensor from a D15 is the same as a D16. I heard that u just cant swap it there a certain to install it if not the idle will be off. Is there an easy way to do it?

I use studs with nuts on them, this way its easier to get a open end wrench back there, all you do is loosen the nuts and adjust. If you use screws, its hard trying to get a screw driver in there.

use a dremel with a flat disk to make a cut into the bolt thing holding th sensor on the T/B. then use a flat head to unscrew it.

When the car jerks or stutters (when off the pedal) while coasting, is this a bad tps. Usually happens around 2000rpm.

Go to the HOW-TO section
Turn your ignition to ON. Turn the TPS until you get a reading of near 0.5 V. Then tighten it down. Double check the voltage and then check the wide open reading. Turn the butterfly in the throttle body to wide open while watching the multi-meter. The reading should gradually increase until you get near 5 V.

Yes, a misaligned TPS sucks. A VAFC is also a very helpful tool. it has a function that helps you calibrate your sensors and you can watch the TPS percentage in real time. This helped me diagnose mine when my car would studder at freeway speeds, the TPS reading would drop to 0% then come back, and so on.
