I drive a 53 reg 1.6 focus zetec, which unfortunately broke down the other day. I own a diagnostic tool so checked the problem and it showed issues with the throttle positioning sensor. I called the recovery people and this was confirmed with their more expensive diagnostic tool. The bloke that came also said that the exhaust was blowing before the cat. I have ordered a new tps and was just wondering if this will solve the problem. Also fuel economy has been very low recently. Thanks

The TPS will help, but as your car is having breathing issues it wont be the sole resolution. You will need to get the blowing sorted as well and give the car a good service to get the economy back to where it needs to be
