8/98 would be the start of the "drive by wire", so both of ours will have that system. One of the sensors is mounted to the back of the throttle pedal and as far as I've found so far, can only be replaced as a unit with the pedal assembly. The other sensor is built into the throttle body and will also require replacement of the throttle body as a unit. Unless someone can provide me with some troubleshooting procedures for either of these sensors, this will probably be a parts swapping adventure. Pedal assembly will be first as it is the cheaper of the two and mine already had part of the plastic housing broken. I will update with the results when I can afford the parts, unless someone can provide some troublshooting help other than buy a scanner that I can't afford....
