Our expert insights into throttle body replacement

Our expert insights into throttle body replacement

What does a throttle body do?

The throttle body is a critical piece of the air intake system that controls the amount of air flowing into the engine. It consists of a pivoting flat valve and is located between the air intake and engine manifold where fresh air is pulled into the engine for the combustion process.

What are the symptoms of a bad throttle body?

Below are the top three symptoms that could indicate you need to replace your throttle body:

  • A very poor or rough idle
  • Poor or unreliable acceleration
  • Excess fuel consumption

What happens when we do a throttle body repair on your car?

Our certified mechanics will:

  • Analyse the ECU to see if there are any related fault codes.
  • Inspect the throttle body and air intake system.
  • Replace the throttle body if there are issues with it.
  • Clean the air intake system of dirt and residue.
  • Advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Finally they will run the engine and test drive the car.
