    Throttle position sensors are connected to the throttle. Look on either side of the throttle body assembly.
    Should look something like the picture below. Don't know what you mean by "emisssion vent valve" If you are talking about the evap canister vent valve, the canister is next to the fuel tank.

    What codes did your truck "throw off"? Usually when a code sets it noes not mean the part is bad. Post the codes and we will help you fix your truck instead of throwing parts at it.

    Default Code p0121

    One of the codes is p0121. that is for the throttle position sensor.The other one was 400 something. I have to get it read again.The guy at the auto parts store told me that the vent valve most likely has a leak an i needed to replace it. Thanks for all of you guys help by the way.

    Most of the big stores will print off something showing you what your codes are.

    The TPS sensor shares a ground with several other sensors. Check the ground wire to the TPS. You should see no more than .300MV. If there is more voltage than .300MV you have a bad ground. If the ground checks good look for a solid 5 Volts on the Ref wire. No more and no less than 5 Volts. If that is good then check the signal return wire for smooth return voltage with no opens or glitches. The best tool for this check is an analog volt meter. It's hard to see a glitch with a DVOM.
