Tps

I went to buy a new tps for my auto 96 f350 and the part that comes up is NOTHING like the one that's on my truck... Plug on the new one doesn't even match up.to.the wiring. Wth is the problem?!? Is it even the tps if i have huge dead spots in my throttle??

Guessing you went to a parts store with a kid behind a computer. Unfortunately most all of these computers are hooked up to the same data source an if there is one bad piece of information from the source the guys behind the counter will never know the difference. Here is the problem with your TPS, Ford has miss labeled the TPS that you've got as for a diesel 7.3 where it is actually for a gas 7.5. Ford molds the correct part number into their parts, I think the one your looking for is CX-1448, so look around your broken part and google that number.

Good luck.

The only aftermarket one I've heard of for our trucks is the Dorman 699-200 (94-97 sensor only). Otherwise you'll have to buy the entire pedal assembly. Cheers!

Guy running into AZ: "Hey, call 911; my car's on fire!"
AutoZtoner behind counter: "Year, make and model?"

Wait wait...I've even been asked "what color's the car?"

Find the oldest guy in the joint, usually at the end of the counter and has a gut that won't quit, and talking the good old days with a customer that looks like he's never bought a part there. That's the guy that knows every part made and knows part number and placement in the store. He'll have a bad attitude but that's part of his charm.
