    I have a question regarding my tps sensor on my 85 reliant se 2.2l tbi car. My tps sensor on the car looks like the ones for the carburetor-ed models not the fuel injected models, what do i do? Did the early tbi cars use the same sensor as carburetor-ed? Pick of what my sensor looks like on rock auto

    1985 PLYMOUTH RELIANT 2.2L 135cid L4 Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) | RockAuto

    I never heard of a TPS on a carburator, it has a mechanical accellerator pump and a TPS is basically an electronic version of an accellerator pump. Select the one which matches the appearance of your original. One has a plug inserted into it and the other has a harness. Should be easy. If you have an ohm meter, you should check yours to be sure it is bad. Also very easy.

    Feedback carbs did have a TPS. It monitored the opening of the carb and reported it to the computer, did nothing more than that.
    I've never compared one of them to what a TPS looks like on the TBI cars.
