    Doing some reaserch I've came to the conclusion my TPS is what's causing my hesitation issues. Can someone tell me where I would find this and is it easy to replace?

    1998 4 cyl. 2.4l Tacoma

    It's on the throttle body. On the other side of where the linkage is.

    Not to be an ass or anything... But if you don't know where it is how did you diagnose it as being bad?

    because I've been chasing this issue for close to a year now and my mechanic is useless. I've been doing an internet search for similair symptoms.

    BTW,,,what difference does it make if I'm trying to chase this issue down myself and not knowing where it is? I don't see the connection. I plan on testing it first...

    If you're planning on testing it first than that's fine. It just sounded like you were ready to replace it based on some research without actually looking at it.

    Did you try a different mechanic? TPS sensors aren't that hard to diagnose ase being bad.
