95 GT throttle Position Sensor

I need a TPS for my 95 GT. There were two different TPS produced for that year one of which is no longer made by ford or any other replacement part company as far as I know which is the F2SF 9b989 CA. This is also the model thats on my car. What I am wondering is if the other replacement part that is still available will function on my car properly.... Please help ASAP

I'm at work so I can't tell you the exact # on the tps but your local autozone or other car store should have the correct one. Just walk in and ask them to look it up. Keep the screws off the old one as the new one does not come with them. When I get home I'll try and grab the product # for you. If your old ones have been on their awhile wd40 them or you'll strip the screws

I believe the one you have should work fine it may be slightly smaller than the original made by ford

Thank you. I have the old TPS removed and took it to Ford dealer, autozone, napa, o'reily auto and advanced auto where all three said they could not get me the part because my specific TPS is no longer made. Ford produced two different serial numbered models of the TPS and of coarse I have the difficult one

Mine reads F2SF 9B989 CA

No prob. I had to replace mine when I put a new throttle body in. Had the same deal because they didn't have a ford one. Works just the same though

Maybe, try asking for one for the - 1994 Ford Thunderbird 3.8L, V6, Supercharged, Gas, Fuel Injected, VIN "R".From what I researched they are the same.

Ok I just tried putting the other TPS option for the 95 that they offer and not the car will not start

---------- Post added at 05:49 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:18 PM ----------

I got it started after letting it crank over two times. Drove it around town and on the highway with no complaints there. Came home shut it off and fired right back up. The only complaint I have is when i first start the car tge idle jumps to about 3500 then slowly goes to idle around 700rpm.

This was one of the problem that lead me to change the TPS

Have you checked to see if your throttle is sticking a little or maybe the IAC valve needs a cleaning?
