Hello to everyone, so I have a question... Is it okay to clean a throttle position sensor
A few people on YouTube says that it is but today at work I was talking to a guy that is made out to be a mechanic and he said "hell no"
I have a 2004 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder and last week it just decided to stop running, when I push on the gas my baby just dies and when I don't push on the gas she will stay running just for a moment but the rpm goes crazy, I have checked the battery and it's good even tho something is also draining it at times(thinking a ground wire somewhere), alternator passed the test, fuel pump turns on and the only codes it's throwing off is P0123 Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor A Circuit High Input. Please help and Thank You

The throttle position sensor is not something you would clean...The guy at your workplace gave you the right answer.
