    It is on the Throttle Body and has a 3-4 wire connector. Yes it is possible to replace it yourself, but get a FACTORY part. Why are you replacing it, do you have a throttle position sensor code?

    Thank you for the answer!
    I found it and replaced it with a toyota part. It still didn't work. It ideled fast and would not react until I pushed halfway down on the foot pedal. I took it off and put back on a couple of times and disconnected the battery, Now it just revs. idles and revs repeatedly. I think I did something wrong?
    I forgot to answer your question, this did start because I got a throttle position sensor code.
