    Need TPS gasket

    Anyone out there know where I can buy a new replacement gasket (the orange one) that goes with my throttle position sensor, on a 1997-2001 jeep cherokee 4.0..??? I have searched everywhere I can think of online but haven't found one yet.. some of the new TPS you buy come with it and while others don't .

    Can't explain why some do and others don't. But it's not really sealing anything. Other than acting like a spacer idk

    So I came across people making this gasket out of manilla file folder. Scrub a pencil on the TPS sensor and lay it onto the file folder to transfer the outline. Then cut and trim.
