Throttle Body Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Throttle Body all about?

For a car to run smoothly, it needs the proper mixture of air and fuel. The amount of air in the engine is controlled by the air intake system. A throttle body is part of the air intake system that helps control the amount of air that gets into the engine. If the throttle body fails, the engine will not get the proper mixture of air and fuel and the engine may lose power.

Keep in mind:

If a throttle body is damaged, it will need to be replaced. Sometimes a throttle body is malfunctioning because it is dirty, in which case it can be cleaned and repaired.

How it's done:

  • Scan the computer system for codes.
  • Check wiring and connections to throttle body.
  • Clean any carbon build-up around intake inlet.
  • Install new gasket and throttle body.
  • Clear the codes.
  • Test drive the vehicle and check for proper operation of the throttle body.

Our recommendation:

When you are getting a major tune up, you may want to get an air induction service and fuel injection flush. The air induction service will clean the throttle plate and remove carbon from the air-intake system. This will prolong the life of the throttle body.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Throttle Body?

  • Check Engine light is on.
  • Warning message on dashboard for "Reduced Power."
  • Poor car performance.
  • Lack of power.
  • Vehicle does not idle properly or engine does not run smoothly.
  • Poor shifting of transmission.

How important is this service?

In order to operate optimally, your engine needs a perfect ratio of fuel and air. It achieves this through the air intake system, which sends air into the engine. The throttle body is a key part of the air intake system. It controls exactly how much air is allowed to enter the engine.

When the throttle body malfunctions or breaks, the incorrect amount of air will enter the engine, and the engine will not run well. When this happens you will likely experience a loss of power or a sputtering engine.

Peter

I was a little worried at first never having used yourmechanic.com and having a timing belt and water pump replaced is no small task, but Pete was more then Up to the challenge. Pete was friendly but professional and immediately got to work and everything went smoothly. Pete did run into a small issue with some rusty bolts when he was installing the new water pump but was able to locate some new ones and finish the job In a timely matter. Overall i am very happy with the service provided and would recommend it to others.

Robert showed up as agreed friendly and clean professional look He immediately went to work on my vw passat and didn't even take a break until he was at least 89% completed he brought all the parts needed plus a thermostat for a small additional fee he also installed He was very positive and even though several distractions occurred while he was working he minded his own business and was very diligent while working He answer every question I asked no matter how trivial and made me feel confident in his ability to complete a very tedious job that was very involved and technical to say the least upon completion he advised me of and future repair needed and I'm and sure I will book him again the future Job well done sir! As far and ms the company is concerned they misquoted my estimate and when I pointed out their error they did make rhe correction I would recommend you go over the quote and make sure they and mandrel billing you properly Thabks for the good job robert
