    this is a common problem, its not the tps. its carbon buildup in the throttle body. get a can of throttle body cleaner, remove the air intake hose, start the van, and spray the cleaner into the throttle body. this will stop it from sticking.

    the tps is along side the throttle body.

    2 screws - T-15 torx head.

    Make sure that the throttle is moving freely, nothing binding or in the way.

    The TPS is a cheap and easy parts to swap

    Source(s): tps = throttle position sensor
