Sometimes when I drive my 2002 Olds Alero, when I need to stop,the rpms stay up at 1500-2000. It makes car hard to stop. it will go away if I turn the car off and on again


Accelerator cable may be sticking and not allowing the throttle to fully close when there is no pressure on the gas pedal. Check the cable at the throttle body to make sure the throttle is fully closing. This can also because by a faulty idle air control (IAC) motor.

Where is the throttle body sensor located?


If you are talking about the "Throttle Position Sensor" you sort-of answered your own question. It is located on the throttle body on the oppsite side of where the throttle cable connects.

Remove the air filter tube, and clean the throttle body with Throttle Body Cleaner and a rag. Make sure all the carbon is removed. DO NOT use Carbuator Cleaner.

How do I install throttle position sensor on 2001 oldsmobile alero


Hi,

I have a 2004 Alero ( similar procedure in your model as well ) and I just figured out today and replaced my throttle position sensor. I'm not sure what the black plastic "box" is called that is above the throttle assembly...but I had to remove that to get to the throttle position sensor underneath. If you can locate the two wires that control the throttle assembly...then the throttle position sensor is on the other side of the throttle assembly. I had to remove the large tube that went from the air filter to the black plastic "box" above the throttle assembly. Also disconnected anything else connected to that black plastic "box". Then pulled that "box" up and right there on the left side of the throttle assembly was the throttle assembly sensor. Here is a web page with a picture that helped me figure out where it was :-
