Restore Lost Power in Your Ford or Mazda
Soft gas pedal? A stretched out throttle cable in a Ford or Mazda (In this
case a Ranger or B3000).Take a look at your throttle cable. See if the
pedal moves up and down and has "slack". If so, your throttle might not be
opening all of the way so you are not getting full power. If you floor the
car the throttle might only be open 80%.
Watch the video to see how a few wire ties can restore this lost power!

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
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

Throttle Body Cleaning - Dirty Throttle Body Symptoms and Problems
http://www.TrustMyMechanic.com (visit my site for TONS of free auto repair
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.

"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.
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

How to clean a throttle body and Idle air control valve (iac)
*** PLEASE READ ***
In this video demonstration, I show how to get to, remove, clean, and
replace the throttle body and idle air control motor (aka IAC) on a 4.2l
ford motor. This procedure is the same for any fuel injected vehicle.
* * * Check out my website krkvideos.com * * *
The vans require removal of alot more stuff just to access the throttle
A dirty IAC can cause a rough idle. A dirty throttle body can harm
performance and cause rough engine operation.
When the throttle body or iac is removed a new gasket must be used to
properly seal the connection to the intake.
GM idle air motors are generally mounted on the throttle body and can be
cleaned without removal from the throttle body. This means one less gasket
and a lesser chance of creating a vacuum leak.
The ford throttle body had a note on it that said it was not to be cleaned
because the coating on the throttle blade might be damaged. Thats fine for
a new car but that has to be disregarded when working on something that has
some miles on it.
