Throttle Body Guides

Air plays a vital role in enabling fuel combustion in your engine. And making sure your engine receives the right amount of air needed for combustion is your vehicle's throttle body. Now, this component is essentially comprised of a housing with an air valve inside. Like the rest of the valves in your car, the air valve is what controls airflow into your engine via its intake manifold. Depending on your vehicle's design, this particular valve will either be employed in MFI throttle bodies or TBI systems. MFI throttle bodies are basically used in multi-point fuel injection systems to regulate airflow. While in TBI systems or throttle body injection systems, this valve is also where fuel is shot through to make its way into the engine cylinders. In most engines, throttle bodies also come with the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. This secondary circuit is what your vehicle uses to regulate airflow when your vehicle is idling. With a working IAC valve, stalling during idling is easily prevented. Aside from having slightly varying functions, throttle bodies can also differ according to their designs. Some of the predominant designs used today include butterfly valves, pinch valves, and barrel-type valves. To find out which type of throttle body your car uses, we recommend checking your owner's manual.

Throttle Body Buyer’s Guide

Summary:

  • The throttle body’s main purpose is to control the airflow in the intake system.
  • The throttle body contains a pivoting flat or butterfly valve that opens and closes to increase or decrease the amount of air coming into the engine. 
  • The butterfly valve’s disc pivots open when the driver steps on the gas pedal. As this happens, the throttle position sensor sends signals to the ECU about the gas pedal input.
  • Mechanical and electronic are the two types of throttle bodies.
  • If you’re in the market for an OE replacement throttle body, alot a budget ranging from $50 to $850.
  • If your throttle body begins to fail, engine performance will suffer. 
  • Illuminated Check Engine Light, lack of engine power, high idling, and limp mode activation are just a few of the signs that your throttle body is in bad shape.

 

Traditional vehicles rely on combustion for the wheels to spin. This combustion happens at the core of the engine, and involves burning fuel. Apparently, the process involves more than just fuel but air, as well. As far as science is concerned, fire, explosion, and combustion will only happen if there’s oxygen present. For the engine to combust more efficiently, the air intake system needs to feed it with air. A component responsible for allowing air into the engine is known as the throttle body. What does a throttle body do? Let’s find out.

 

What is a throttle body?

If you examine your intake system, you’ll see a valve located between the air intake and intake manifold. This component, which main purpose is to control the airflow, is known as the throttle body. It contains a pivoting flat or butterfly valve that opens and closes to increase or decrease the amount of air coming into the engine. The throttle body is seen in an fuel-injected car and those that use carbureted engines. 

 

On a fuel-injected engine, the throttle body is connected to the gas pedal either mechanically by a cable or electronically by wire. In an electronically fuel-injected car, both the throttle position and air flow sensors communicate with the computer, which, in turn, supplies the optimum amount of fuel to the injectors.

 

How does a throttle body work?

The butterfly valve’s disc pivots open when the driver steps on the gas pedal. As this happens, the throttle position sensor sends signals to the ECU about the gas pedal input. When the airflow sensor detects more air, it will demand the computer to increase the amount of fuel being injected. Some vehicles feature a large single throttle body, while select bigger displacement engines have one for each cylinder.

 

Types of throttle bodies

Depending on which type of fuel-injection system your vehicle has, you could either have a mechanical or electronic throttle body. Here’s the difference between the two.

 

Mechanical throttle body

A mechanical throttle body (MTB) is operated via a cable that’s connected to the gas pedal, and is built with high-grade materials to ensure unparalleled operation. However, they are heavier when compared to electronic throttle bodies. The main advantage, however, is that you’ll only face mechanical failures, which are relatively easier to deal with than electrical failures.

 

Electronic throttle body

Electronic throttle body, ETB for short, is mainly controlled by the engine control module (ECM), which also handles cruise control, mass airflow sensor, and engine speed sensor readings. The ECM combines these data and controls the throttle valve to the desired opening. Electronic throttle controls have few moving parts compared to MTBs, which means less maintenance cost.

 

How much is a throttle body?

If you’re in the market for an OE replacement throttle body, alot a budget ranging from $50 to $850. Price varies depending on the brand, type of assembly, product fitting, condition, and quantity sold. Throttle bodies are sold individually, as an assembly, or as part of a kit. To get the best-quality OE replacement parts from reputable manufacturers, shop on CarParts.com.

 

Bad throttle body symptoms

A clean throttle body is important since it’s the component that controls the amount of air needed for efficient combustion. If your throttle body begins to fail, engine performance will suffer. To help you prevent further intake system failure, here are a few common symptoms of a faulty throttle body.

 

Illuminated Check Engine Light

One of the few early signs you might encounter if you’re having a failing throttle body is an illuminated Check Engine Light on the instrument panel. A car’s electronic throttle control (ETC) module constantly checks the performance of the throttle body. If it detects any issues in the throttle body, the ETC will turn on the Check Engine Light warning on.

 

Lack of engine power and poor engine response

The engine needs the right fuel-air mixture to attain optimum power. If the throttle body is malfunctioning, it won’t be able to control the amount of air entering the combustion chambers. A slight change in ratio could heavily affect the combustion process. This could result to poor engine performance, as it wouldn’t be able to produce enough power.

 

Engine shakes a lot when idling

One symptom of a bad throttle body is poor idling. If your car behaves roughly on idle, chances are your throttle body isn’t in good shape. Worse is that your car may occasionally stall due to lack of air entering the chambers.

 

Car runs on Limp Mode

Have you ever heard of limp mode? Limp mode is a car engine and transmissions’ security feature. It is activated when the engine and transmission control unit detects a serious problem involving the transmission and the engine. When your car is in limp mode, there will be reduced power, as well as decreased RPM. This way, you can drive your car to the workshop safely and without introducing more problems to your engine.

 

The symptoms, however, are not limited to the things mentioned above. Other signs include hesitation when accelerating, inconsistent surges in speed on the highway, gear shifting difficulties, and a surprising drop in fuel economy. Be sure to contact a certified mechanic as soon as you experience one or two of these symptoms, as more serious underlying issues could be present in your system. To avoid more problematic issues in the future, it’s best to replace your failing throttle body as soon as possible.

 

What causes your throttle body to fail?

A failing throttle body could be caused by a mechanical or electrical problem depending on what type of intake system your car has. The most common to modern vehicles are electrical and contaminant issues inside the throttle body itself.

 

Dirt buildup inside the valve

Dirt, grime, and any harmful deposits inside the valve can clog and prevent air from entering the valve’s opening. It will cause an imbalance in the air-fuel ratio by blocking or interrupting the airflow.

 

Electrical issues

Any problems associated with the electrical parts of the intake system can cause changes in the throttle body’s performance. Issues ranging from connectivity to interrupted relay of information being sent or received by the car’s computer and sensors. If there’s inaccuracy in the data, you’ll face jumpy or poor engine performance.

 

Importance of replacing a failing throttle body

The first thing you are saving when you replace your throttle body is the air intake system of your car. If the intake system functions properly, you will be able to preserve your engine performance by ensuring proper fuel-air ratio all the time. If your engine is healthy, your car will run smoothly. Another benefit of replacing a bad throttle body is power in its most optimal form. A failing throttle body can result in reduced power, as the engine isn’t breathing the right amount of air to combust more efficiently.
 

Important Facts You Need to Know About Throttle Body

All show, no go. That's how your fuel-injected car would act once its throttle body conks out. On most cars, the throttle is mechanical. A mechanical throttle uses a cable to make the throttle linkages move the throttle plate.The plate's position determines how much air flows into your car's engine. There are electronic throttles as well. Electronic throttle systems are controlled by the engine control unit (ECU), eliminating the use for a throttle cable. The ECU sets the throttle plate's position according to information sent by different sensors (such as the engine speed sensor and the accelerator pedal position sensor).Both types of throttle bodies, however, become prone to failure as time passes. Once the throttle fails, your car may idle or accelerate roughly. It may not even start up properly at all. Simply put, throttle failure can paralyze your car. The throttle body may become defective due to corrosion, leading to stuck parts or burnt-out sensors.If you want to keep your car moving, make sure it has a fully functioning throttle. Auto Parts Deal has just the right stuff to help you with that.

• Highly resistant to corrosion

• Has durable valves and linkages that last longer than stock
 

Getting the Throttle Body in Place

For your car to have a proper intake of air, a good throttle body must be installed properly. The throttle body is the one that controls the amount of air entering your engine's combustion chamber. To help you out, here are the steps on getting the throttle body properly in place:

Required skill level: Intermediate

Required tools and materials:

  • 0.25-inch sockets
  • 0.25-inch ratchet
  • Wrench set
  • Screwdriver set

Removing the hat

The first thing to go would be the throttle body hat (or simply, the hood). If your vehicle has an aftermarket air intake installed, it would be easier for you. If not, you would just need to remove the flex hose first before the throttle hat.

Disconnecting the throttle

After removing the hood, you would see three electronic connections attached to the throttle body: one in the rear and two on the driver side. To remove the two on the side, simply push down on the tab and pull them off. For the other one, you would need to slightly lift the tab to be able to take it off. Next, remove the vacuum line found in front of the throttle body.

After getting the electric connections out, it's time to focus on the throttle cables. There are also three throttle cables in the assembly - all of which have a C-shaped end connecting them to the throttle. Do not pry them off. To remove them, you need push out the cables toward the opposite direction it is being pushed in. Remember to push the cables past the stud to get it out.

Removing the body

You need to remove the bolts holding the throttle cable attachment brace to the body (there are two in front and one behind the spring on the side). The brace is still attached to the cables so do not move it very far.

Now, you need to remove the four bolts on top of the throttle body. After taking them off, you should be able to lift the body off. Remember to cover the opening after removing the body to make sure that nothing falls in it.

Installing the throttle body

Remove all the sensors (the idle motor, the throttle position sensor, and the MAP sensor) from the old throttle body and install them on the new part. You can now place the new body in place, replacing all the bolts you removed before.

After putting back all the bolts and cables, you would just need to disconnect the negative side of the battery for about 10 to 20 seconds. Reconnecting it after allows the computer to reset and learn the setting with the new air flow rates.

Choosing the Right Throttle Body for Your Vehicle

Maintaining the appropriate air-fuel ratio of your car's engine is the throttle body's job. When it breaks or gets damaged, your vehicle could malfunction due to the imbalance in the air-fuel ratio in the engine's combustion system. A few things must be considered when looking for a throttle body, such as compatibility, engine type, and budget.

Compatibility

Determine your car's make, model, name, and year. It greatly helps to know what your vehicle specifications are, since these will be your bases when testing any part's compatibility with your car. You can retrieve your vehicle's information from documents like the owner's manual or registration papers. Another way to find your car info is through your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

Engine type

The throttle body is an engine component, which means that it's essential to identify your engine type when choosing a new throttle body. Looking for alternatives is made easy since automakers frequently manufacture the same engine for different models; and sometimes, even different brands. A Toyota and GM model, for example, could have identical engines, with the throttle body being the exact same part. The difference could be in the prices where one typically is cheaper than the other.

Budget

Getting a throttle body for your car depends on your allotted budget as well. Different manufacturers offer different prices for their throttle bodies. Below is a brief comparison of some throttle body brands and their prices.

  1. Bosch - A throttle body from Bosch is sold individually at the price of $183.95. It's covered by a flexible warranty option, with choices ranging from 1-year, 3-year, to lifetime warranty. It's not that expensive for a brand new throttle body, so, if you're after quality and brand prestige, then you might want to try Bosch.
  2. A1 Cardone - Unlike Bosch, A1 Cardone offers a remanufactured throttle body at the price of only $101.78. It's covered with a 1-year or 18000-mile limited warranty, which is reasonable for its condition. If you're looking for an affordable throttle body with decent quality, then A1 Cardone is definitely one of your choices.

How to Clean Your Car's Throttle Body

A combustion engine system requires a balanced air-fuel ratio in order to function properly. Your vehicle's engine gets the appropriate amount of air, especially upon acceleration, with the help of a part called the throttle. If the throttle body, an integral throttle component, gets dirt and residue inside, the engine's air-fuel ratio will suffer. Cleaning the throttle body, therefore, is important in car care and engine maintenance.

Here's a step by step instruction on how to clean the throttle body:

Difficulty level: Moderate

Tools to be used:

  • Flashlight
  • Car's repair manual
  • Screwdrivers
  • Wrench
  • Ratchet and socket
  • Toothbrush or any small cleaning brush
  • Throttle body cleaner
  • Paper towel or clean cloth

Step 1: Park your car in a level surface and turn the engine off. Allow the engine to cool completely before starting the repair.

Step 2: Open the hood and disengage your vehicle's negative battery terminal. Refer to your car's repair manual to release the fuel system pressure and find other parts unfamiliar to you.

Step 3: Detach the air cleaner assembly. Locate and label any small hoses that you need to remove in order to reach the throttle body. You can use either masking tapes or other specialized labeling tools.

Step 4: Unplug the cables connected to the throttle lever and remove the electrical connectors from sensors, valves, and idle control motor unit. Remove the vacuum hoses connected to the throttle body as well.

Step 5: Disengage the inlet and return fuel lines from the throttle body. Then, unbolt the throttle body unit with a wrench or ratchet and socket.

Step 6: Take off the throttle body from the intake manifold and detach any plastic, rubber, and other electrical components still connected to it. Submerge it in a throttle body cleaner based on the product manufacturer instructions.

Step 7: Change any other damaged parts as necessary and reassemble the throttle body. Get a scraper, lacquer thinner, and a clean piece of cloth, and clean the intake manifold mating surface thoroughly.

Step 8: Place the throttle body unit on the cleansed intake manifold using a base plate gasket and secure the mounting bolts according to the sequence in your car's repair manual. Follow the sequence carefully as it may cause further damage if not replaced correctly.

Step 9: Connect the inlet and reattach the fuel lines, electrical connectors, vacuum hoses, throttle lever cables, and air cleaner assembly. Reconnect the black, negative cable to the battery terminal.
