    I just took my CRV to the dealership with symptoms similar to those in
    other posts and they said it was a bad Throttle Position Sensor and
    the entire Throttle Body would have to be replaced to the tune of

    Checking with AutoZone, they said there is no aftermarket part to buy
    but then he found performance parts...Throttle Bodies ranging from
    $277 to $353 or just a Throttle Position Sensor for $41.

    Can anyone give me some advice, opinion or instruction as to buying
    just the sensor and installing it???

    YOu need to do more research first. Look through ALL the TSB's mentioned
    at this page http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/tsb/ especially the
    ebscohost ones.

    TB problems are very rare and often misdiagnosed. Check the connectors
    first. Get an ANALOG meter and test it yourself very slowly and
    thoroughly. Write down the min and max resistances in case you find
    there's a blip at the spot that corresponds to you highway cruise speed
    (throttle will be open maybe 10 degrees). If you find the blip, you'll
    have to replace the variable resistor, if you dare. There's lots of
    sites where you can learn how to drill out the rivets and install a new
    one. Getting the resistor is the trick. :) I used to know this guy in
    Russia who could get anything....

    Have you approached Honda for any 'goodwill' consideration? You didn't
    mention your mileage. It's very important in figuring out which problem
    you have.

    -- You need to tell us the diagnostic CODE the dealer wrote on your
    invoice too -------

    Take a look at this thread. It involves an '04 with only 50,000 miles:

    Still waiting for the CODE, and your mileage.
