Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the throttle position sensor on this 1996 Chevy Tahoe with the 5.7 Liter V8 engine. It's the same part and process on these Tahoes from 1996 to 2003. The items that you're going to need for this include a new throttle position sensor from 1AAuto.com, a T25 Torx bit, and a ratchet.

Your throttle position sensor is located right here. You want to just pull back on the tab on the harness and pull it free. Then remove these two T25 Torx bolts. We'll just fast-forward as Don does this. Now the sensor will pull free.

On the right is the old throttle position sensor; on the left is the new one from 1A Auto. You can see they're identical, and they're going to mount exactly the same.

Push the new throttle position sensor into place. Then replace those two T25 Torx bolts and tighten them up. Now reconnect your harness, and you're all set.

We hope this video helps you out. Brought to you by www.1AAuto.com, your source for quality replacement parts and the best service on the Internet. Please feel free to call us toll-free, 888-844-3393. We're the company that's here for you on the Internet and in person.
