The terms of the Powertrain Warranty are available at: Chevy Warranty Information | Owners | Chevrolet

The cost of replacing a throttle position sensor varies from location to location, dealer to dealer.

Best of luck!

If you have additional questions, feel free to PM me.

i took my tahoe in to the dealer for the tps and it turns out that it was just dirty so i got charged 100 bucks just for that then it was another 200 to get it cleaned. according to the dealer itss not coverd under warranty it a maintenance issue. this 100000 warranty sucks it seem like they find a way not to honor it. oh well never had these issues with foerign cars like mits. but i still love my tahoe

Welcome to the forum.

First, for about a $10 spray can of cleaner, you could have saved $300. Why did you think the TPS needed replacing in the first place?

Second, the only thing I've seen to allow viewing in motion, is called a Lockpick.

100,000 mile warranty is for the powertrain it is not bumper to bumper. The powertrain is the engine, transmission, transfer case and differentials. Not any items bolted or attached to those items. If you engine or trans blew up they would replace them under that warranty.

OP: What was your truck doing that made you think or that you were told that you needed to have the TPS replaced if you dont mind me asking/

For future reference, the DTC merely suggests a possible area to start troubleshooting. You really need the FSM which has detailed fault trees for complete diagnosis of a DTC.
