    My car turned 100k miles and I am looking to replace most all of the sensors. What do all thes abbreviations mean? ECT, IAC, ACT, TPS, IAT. Where can I go and buy all these at? Thanks for all the help!

    Air Charge Temperature
    Throttle Position Sensor

    I don't know that I would worry about replacing them. If you want to do a tune up, do plugs/rotor/cap/wires, and if they're stock, O2 sensors. Clean the mass air sensor, throttle body, and IAC. 100k miles is nothing.

    The FAQ sheet has explanations of all these. It's a sticky thread up top.

    I would have to agree with Dave. Theres no sense changing them if they're working alright. Do the others things mentioned if its time for a tuneup.
