Throttle Body Cleaning - Dirty Throttle Body Symptoms and Problems
http://www.TrustMyMechanic.com (visit my site for TONS of free auto repair info) Throttle body cleaning. Does your car idle rough, does the engine seem like it is trying to die when you are at a stop light, is the engine taking a little longer to start than normal? You might have a dirty throttle body and that is something you can repair yourself. In this video we are cleaning the throttle body on a 2005 Ford F150 pick up truck with a 4.6 V8 engine. Using just a wire brush and some throttle body cleaner made by BG, or you can use any throttle body cleaner made for throttle body service which is available at your local auto parts store. If you want to learn more about car maintenance and what you can do yourself to help save money. Visit my site link at the top. "Common Throttle Body Symptoms and Problems" What are the most common complaints I see in my auto repair shop that are related to a dirty throttle body? 1. Rough idle speed. We like to call this hunt and peck, like a chicken does when it is looking for food. The engine is trying to keep a steady idle speed but the carbon build up in the throttle body plates are not allowing it. So the engine is hunting for a steady idle speed, which causes the roughness you feel inside the vehicle. 2. Slower starts or extended starting periods. You might have to crank the engine over much longer than you used to. The engine might start and die, and you have to crank it again. These are pretty common complaints when there is a dirty throttle body issue. http://www.TrustMyMechanic.com 3. Dies at stops. The engine is having a hard time keeping the idle speed high enough without dying. This complaint is worse with the air conditioner on, since there is more load on the engine with the A/C compressor on. A dirty throttle body will cause the engine to decrease the idle speed as the vehicle comes to a complete stop, and will eventually die. Restarting can take some time as in the extended crank complaint above. This is a common complaint and the throttle body as well as the idle speed control motor should be cleaned periodically as part of regular scheduled maintenance.

Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this video in response to it. There are many different configurations of throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts store. One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle (DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this procedure if you're trying to correct a problem with a sticking throttle. If you have idle problems, I recommend you check out this article on my website. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/solving-automotive-idle-problems The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com BowlingBalOutl's channel http://www.youtube.com/user/bowlingballout Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy?fref=ts Twitter: https://twitter.com/EricTheCarGuy Google+: https://plus.google.com/100195180196698058780/posts Information on Premium Membership: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-streaming-etcg-content Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.

My main point here is that if you have a performance problem and you're going to throw parts at the problem start with the basics before you to off and start replacing sensors that you suspect are a problem, if you don't have evidence of a faulty sensor then don't start there start with the simple tune up items and check for vacuum leaks and air leaks as I've shown here and I believe you'll have better results and save yourself some money in the process. In short the rule of KISS applies, Keep It Simple Stupid.

Here in Wisconsin, cars take a beating. The headlights were in really bad shape. I tried another product that I found in a hardware store and it didn't do much. I was contemplating buying new headlight kits. I saw your ad in Autoweek, and watched the demo on your website. I thought I'd give it a try. I am very pleased with the result. The money I spent and the half hour of my time was worth it. I'll be looking for some of your other products to help bring back the exterior finish. If you have suggestions, I'm listening."

Hydrogen Hybrid Conversion For ANY Vehicle - I'm Saving 56% At The Gas Pump!
This is a 1998 Ford Explorer Sport converted into a hydrogen hybrid by Alex Rivera and how2savefuel.com. horsepower and torque increased significantly after the conversion - The truck accelerates much more quickly without the engine laboring nearly as much as it used to! Highway MPG improved by 56%, city MPG improved by 35%. The system produces hydrogen ON-DEMAND and it is immediately used by the engine - Hydrogen is NOT stored, so there is no risk of fire or explosion (in the case of a car accident). I'm saving more money at the gas pump than I ever thought possible and I didn't have to go and buy a hybrid to do it! Convert the vehicle you ALREADY own! ANY combustion engine! This is an UNPAID testimonial - I was so impressed with this system, I made this video as a "Thank You!" for Alex Rivera and how2savefuel.com. All of your questions answered at HOW2SAVEFUEL.COM
