What is the throttle body and how does it work?

The throttle body is an air metering device mounted between the air filter and snorkel, and the intake plenum. Within the throttle body is a movable throttle plate whose position controls the amount of air that enters the engine to determine engine speed. Throttle body designs vary. Some incorporate an idle air control valve, throttle position sensor, and other electronic throttle controls. The throttle plate in the throttle body can be controlled directly by an accelerator pedal cable or fully electronically in the newest drive-by-wire systems.

When to consider replacing the throttle body:

  • Check engine light and/or reduced power warning light is on. Most modern throttle bodies have electrical components, such as a throttle position sensor. These components are monitored by the powertrain control module (PCM). If the check engine light or reduced power warning light comes on, a mechanic will determine if any of the stored trouble codes implicate a throttle body malfunction.
  • Wrong idle speed. Carbon deposits in the throttle body, particularly around the movable throttle plate or in the idle air control valve, can cause the engine idle speed to be too low or too high.
  • Poor transmission shifting. In some applications, transmission shift timing relies on signal outputs from the throttle body. If the throttle position sensor is defective, that might adversely affect shift timing and feel.

How do mechanics replace the throttle body?

  • The engine cover is removed, if necessary.
  • The flexible rubber snorkel from the air filter housing to the throttle body is disconnected. Typically, the connection is made with a large stainless steel hose clamp.
  • The electrical connections to the throttle body are removed.
  • If the throttle body is not a drive-by-wire system, the accelerator cable and cruise control cable are disconnected and set aside.
  • The bolts retaining the throttle body to the plenum, the gasket, and the throttle body are removed. If the throttle body is being cleaned and tested for re-use, approved chemicals are used in the cleaning process.
  • The new or serviced throttle body is re-attached to the plenum and the bolts torqued to factory specifications.
  • All cables and electrical connections are restored. The intake air snorkel is reconnected.
  • If applicable, the electronic throttle installation and idle re-learn procedures are performed using an appropriate scan tool.
  • Finally, the engine is started, brought to normal operating temperature, and idle speed is checked. The car is road tested to ensure normal operation and no illumination of warning or service lights.

Is it safe to drive with a throttle body problem?

Yes. But, the vehicle may be limited in power or put into what is referred to as limp mode, in order to get the vehicle to a repair facility. If the check engine light is on, or the electronic throttle control warning light is on, but there is no noticeable difference in engine performance, the car can be safely driven. However, it is best to have it diagnosed and repaired at your earliest convenience to avoid unexpected breakdown or possible damage to the catalytic converter.

When replacing the throttle body keep in mind:

  • Many modern throttle bodies have spring loaded sensors and plastic gears that are not intended to be manipulated directly during any diagnostics or inspections. These components are controlled electronically or generate signals. It is best to let a mechanic use approved tests to diagnose the problem.
  • Wiring faults, bad grounds, or bad terminal connections can make it appear as though an electronically controlled throttle has failed. A mechanic will always rule out all other causes before replacing the throttle body.
  • When cleaning the throttle body, special care should be taken to use only special spray cleaners designed to not damage electrical components or sensors.

Audi A5 Quattro V6-3.2L - Throttle Body - The Colony, Texas
Alex was very professional and knowledgeable. The dealership quoted me $1200 to replace the throttle body. I found the part for $320 and Alex charged me $98. Alex arrived on time and completed the install under an hour. He suggested other services that my car might need but was not pushy. I will definitely use this service again and will recommend Alex as my technician.

Audi A4 L4-2.0L Turbo - Spark Plugs - Las Vegas, Nevada
My fuel pump, fuel filter, and spark plugs were changed out. He let me know I bought the wrong vacuum pump, probably only bc it was a different figment than the correct one. 1 day after the Mx, my engine started shaking and the car felt like it was being driven over lumps of coal with the emergency brake applied. When I called YM to talk to them about it, I was informed that I would have to pay for another inspection since I provided my own parts. Nevermind the fact that it may have had nothing to do with the parts, but possibly just with the maintenance itself. I took my car to Midas and was informed by that I had had the wrong spark plugs put in, and that caused a crack in 3 out of 4 of my ignition coils-a problem that did not exist prior to the maintenance done by Luis. That was my fault for buying my own parts (which saved me a $75% markup from YM’s parts) although most websites said that those plugs fit my car. If that was the case, though, a 13 year mechanic should have been able to let me know that that was the wrong part just like he did with the vacuum pump instead of placing them in my car. So I’m shelling out another $300 to have yet another set of spark plugs and ignition coils replaced. Thanks YM. I’m not as upset at Luis as I am YM, bc I feel if I could have talked to Luis about this instead of being stonewalled by the company, I would have had a better outcome and a better understanding of what went wrong.
