Were is the TPS pedal position sensor located in a 2001 chevy s10?

I have a diagnosis code p0122 ( TPS/Pedal Position Sensor A Circuit Low Input) on my 2001 chevy S-10 pick up, it has a 4 cylinder engine. Does someone out there know where the TPS sensor is located and how difficult is it to replace?

    The throttle position sensor is located on the throttle body. Take the intake tube off and you'll see the "butterfly" that opens when you press the gas pedal. On one side is the linkage that operates the butterfly, directly opposite of the linkage, on the opposite end of the butterfly shaft is the TPS. It is usually held on by two small torx head screws and has a wire connector that plugs in to it. Simple to replace, just make sure the new one is engaged correctly in the slot in the throttle shaft before you reinstall the screws. Plug it in and you are done. Don't forget to have your MIL reset.
