Code 19

Was driving my temperamental companion, as I down shifted on highway up a hill (she's not the most aggressive on hills) she fired a check engine mayday...... code 19 'Throttle Position Sensor' I have yet to do any research, so this is the lazy start to research..... has anyone suffered from a 'code 19'?
Have to mention, she had actually been driving good for a change, other than the occasional at warm up she would 'misfire' or lose idle. Only on certain occasions while she warmed up, after that she been burning gas normal.....
thanks ahead
cheers

Anyone familiar with the 'Throttle Position Sensor' where it is or how to test it?

It's a little black plastic piece on the front side of the intake plenum (directly opposite where the throttle cable attaches). It has two screws holding it on, and wires coming out of it.

I am not sure about testing it other than remove it and clean it thoroughly and make sure the shaft turns freely and springs back.

Thanks Charles, I'm going to take it off, clean it and see if that will do..... I do have a idle issue going on and maybe all related....

You can move it and it should be electrically a clean sweep with no dead spots. I can't remember the specs on what you use on the test meter to check.

Check for pin holes in the tube that goes from the MAF to the intake as well.

Will check all recommended, clean it and see if leaks. If change is last option what is the part you change out of these 2? or do both need to be changed? they both go by same name.....

The first one is the one you have but you don't want to buy that new from RN at that price

I am sure there are better new options, otherwise just get a used one from one of the used parts vendors.

Rockauto has it for $190..... damn...... recognize it now. I've actually taken it off before to clean when I've had intermittent idle issues and the stepper motor. The idle issue seems to come & go. Possible other make that would fit?

Thanks!!
