Q: How long does it take to remove and replace a throttle?

asked by on

The throttle sensor won't go off.

My car has 27000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there

If the throttle sensor is not working, it’s most likely caused by an electrical issue; as opposed to a mechanical problem with the throttle body or other components. The best thing to do is have a professional mobile mechanic complete a check engine light inspection first, so they can download all trouble codes that may have caused the throttle light to illuminate in the first place.
