The car is a 2006 Impala LT, 3.5L with 97k miles.

I got a check engine light along with rough idling in the cold, and the code is P0121 - throttle position sensor. My shop is telling me they can't just replace the sensor, they must replace the whole throttle body. I have seen the sensors for sale separately from the throttle bodies. Are they right?

Pretty sure the 3.5L is drive by wire...so yes, they are right.
