I think that would be all you need, but I know you will need "star" shaped bits for your driver so you can take out the IAC. When putting the TPS back on, align the TPS with the tab aligns with the tangs, Inside the TPS so it is in the back. I know, sounds weird. But really all you have to do is put the TPS on, and if it fits flush against the throttle body and you can adjust it to find the screw holes, you got it right. If it doesn't fit flush, take it off and try again. It is made so that it can only fit one way. I REALLY hope changing the TPS and IAC works for you. Good Luck!!!

Yeah, it's as easy as unplug, unbolt, remove, then replace just like you found it. I don't think there is even a gasket on the TPS. I know there is a rubber o-ring on the IACV but I don't think there is anything on the TPS.

I fired mine up today and it idled fine. I could actually get to the TPS with a long extension and pecked on it a few times. It didn't have any affect. Mine idles and runs normal the vast majority of the time though so it could be in the early stages???

Let us know your results please!!

it has been a while since I have been on the forum but two weeks ago I finally changed the TPS and everything is super smooth. No idling variations or nothing, very stable.
