its actually only four screws that hold the APP sensor to the throttle body. the only thing is that its in a tight spot. if you are pretty handy, its probably 2hrs of work.

I was having the same problem just the other day. Does anyone have pics of the exact location of this TPS sensor?

Yes, does anybody have pictures of the TPS and APPS location?

So if I'm reading this right:

P1120 = Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor
P1121 = Throttle Position Sensor

Is this correct? And if I get both codes does it mean I should replace both?

Yes, instead of starting a new thread, I'm bumping this 7 year old thread.

Can anyone accurately answer the above question about the 2 different codes that sleeper408 previously inquired about?

I just pulled one code, P1121. Having same symptoms. CEL VSC VSC OFF limp mode and rough low idle.

You need to read these 32 pages to learn all about the 3 components on that throttle body. Get your self a multimeter and test the specs for each. Very easy and the specs are listed somewhere in this thread, I just can't remember where.
