Q: Intake manifold stuck open

asked by on

The intake manifold on my car is stuck open.

I’m guessing that you mean your throttle body is stuck open? These vehicles are known for having problems with their throttle bodies. I would ask for help from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to come and examine your vehicle to determine if the throttle body needs replacement.
