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.

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.
