    How to replace TPS?

    My cars been acting up lately....and I was starting to think something was wrong with the engine....then I remember i'm a stupid azzhole who forgot that my bird was throwing a code for a bad TPS when I had someone scan it for me over the summer...lol.

    How hard are they to replace? I'll probably go to autozone to pick one up in today or the next day.

    It's a 3.4 btw.

    Is it just unscrew (looks like two in that picture), then unplug the old and do the reverse to install or am I going to have to splice wires???
