Ned Help Finding Sensor

Ok so I bought a 89 mustang LX 4 cyl.

Ya I know it is a 4 banger. But it's my first ford project. My question is where is the TPS sensor. I found my MAP one. Since I do not have the MAF.

Any help would be great!

Hey SilverBullet, on the 2.3 4 bangers the TPS is located directly on top of the TB. Rpm should be set to 850 so when the A/C is on it doesn't bog out on you. The voltage if I'm not mistaken should be like .95-.99

I hope this helps you bro.

Ha! Thanks maldog! Found it. Looks like it was replaced but didn't tighten it at all down. Drives way better but still can do better.

Re: Ned Help Finding Sensor

Check the voltage and see if it's in the parameters. Also, did you clean your MAF sensor? Do you have a tune of some type?

Re: Ned Help Finding Sensor

I think you might have her going as good as she can go

Plugs, wires, fuel filter and stuff like that would be my next step.

Remember she's old

The voltage looks good on all of them. And this car didn't come with a MAF. I have a MAP that's hooked onto the firewall. Cleaned the IAC and purrrs great. going to do a compression test soon see how that going.
