If you’ve recently been facing any acceleration problems with your car, you may have a bad throttle position sensor in your car.
The throttle position sensor does just what its name suggests. It monitors the position data of the throttle in internal combustion engines. It reads the position of the accelerator pedal and sends it to the ECU. This unit uses the information to control the rest of the throttle body, which is an important part of the car’s air intake system. If the throttle positioning sensor fails to function properly, the ratio of the engine’s air-fuel mixture will be compromised, and the vehicle will have problems running smoothly.
