Throttle body sensor

My question are; Is this most likely the same problem? Can I, as a home mechanic replace this sensor? Is there anything I should be aware of? Or should I take it back to the shop and deal / argue with them about a possibly bad replacement part.

There's no way to do it AFAIK other than to drive around with a meter connected in at various places in the sensor harness (at connectors ideally) to spot intermittant readings in the hot, the signal, or the ground. Usually it's one of the connectors that's acting up, but also a wire could be pinched or broken.
Most mechanics don't like to be bothered with such time-consuming diagnosis ...it doesn't pay money. They swap parts instead.
