Just like the throttle, the throttle body plays a very important part in how your fuel-injected engine runs, and makes the car move. The air intake system relies on the throttle body as a pivotal component. The air intake system is what is responsible for controlling the air flow that passes into your engine. For this reason the engine speed is in fact determined by the throttle body.

It’s always wise to be aware of the signs to watch out for that may indicate it’s time to replace the throttle body. Obviously, if any signs pop up, it’s best to get your vehicle looked at by a professional.

When you are ready to purchase a new throttle body, keep a few things in mind:

  • Buy new: Make sure you’re purchasing a brand new part, rather than a used one. You need to know that the part is clean and free of dirt and debris, so that it will work as it is meant to.

  • Review your owners manual: Refer to your owner’s manual regarding your car’s throttle body. This is the best way to determine what you need.

  • Quality: Be sure to ask about the quality of the parts used in the throttle body. Different price points can provide you with higher or lower quality materials.

  • Warranty: Ask about the warranty on the part.

Volvo XC90 - Throttle Body - Morris Plains, New Jersey
Attila was fantastic! He was timely (even arrived earlier than the appointment time), extremely courteous, completed everything and thoroughly walked through every step of the work he did, including the post-fix inspection. Also took the time to recommend things that will need work in the future. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone who needs work done on their car, whether it be a small task or a major one.

attila was able to take some complex question that I had and deal with them effectively and make me much more comfortable about the diagnosis that the dealer provided.

Buick Verano - Throttle Body - Lithonia, Georgia
Andrew was very professional and very knowledgeable. He arrived to my place of residence an hour before my appointment. I was not home at the time and he called me to inform me that he was at my home. He patiently waited until I arrived. He immediately started performing the job on my car and was completed in no more then 30 minutes later. He also did a inspection on my vehicle as well. He was very detailed and I would like to have him personally to perform any other work that's needed on my vehicle. This company services and communication is outstanding and I will recommend them to my friends and family.

Very clear and precise on the replacement of my alternator and suggest when I should have future service in intervals to break up the cost. Will definitely use again.
