    Ok so im looking to buy a 91 civic hatchback

    i wanted to get this one for 1100
    91 HONDA HATCH BACK DONT MISS OUT ON IT

    theres just a couple problems with it

    one is that it needs a new TPS

    what exactly is a TPS and what does it do?

    im guessing u need it to actually drive the car because he said i couldnt drive it home

    any help please thanks

    Throttle Position/Angle Sensor

    TPS sensor input is used to determine when the throttle is:

    Idle
    Wide Open Throttle (WOT)
    Rapid Movement
    During these conditions the ECU makes changes to the injector Pulse Width (PW).
    The PW is widen slightly when the throttle initially goes to idle. Within a few seconds the O2 sensor will correct the mixture.


    Honda does not sell TPS Sensors. you'd have to hack off the broken one and put a working one on.

    Goodluck
