Question: they suggested perhaps attempting to replace the sensor first since it is the cheaper route and might also be the problem. Good idea? I was actually a bit surprised that the codes wouldn't tell them more precisely what should be replaced...
If you DIY, it shoudl cost you around $800-$850 out the door just for parts. Not quite sure what sensor you are talking about. Did they say which one of the 2 throttle actuators were giving you issues?
