What does a Throttle Body do?

The throttle body is part of the engine's air inlet system, provided your car has a fuel injection. It is situated before the engine's inlet manifold and regulates the air flow into the engine (where it is also mixed with fuel). It consists of a butterfly valve that opens or closes depending on how much air the engine needs (which, in turn, depends on the driver's throttle input).

How do you know there is something wrong with the Throttle Body?

  • When the 'Check Engine' light is on.
  • When the engine runs rough.
  • When the engine idle is rough.
  • When the engine performs not as well as usually is the case.
  • When the shifting gear is problematic.
  • When the engine runs at a higher temperature than usual.
  • When starting the car is troublesome.

When should you consider a Throttle Body replacement?

Over time the throttle body's parts can wear and ultimately fail, both resulting in the engine not being fed the correct amount of air for the air / fuel mixture to combust in the cylinder. In the event, the engine may lose power. In most cases the throttle body will just be dirty (usually it's covered in a black residue), preventing an adequate amount of air to pass through the valve.

Should you experience an issue like this or those listed earlier, it is advisable to have the throttle body inspected as soon as possible and, if necessary, have it replaced. Seeing that the throttle body is a component that is especially prone to wear it should always be replaced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during a Throttle Body replacement?

  • Mechanic will read the ECU to see if there are any related fault codes.
  • Mechanic will inspect the throttle body and air inlet system
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the throttle body.
  • Mechanic will clear the air inlet system of dirt.
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will run the engine and test drive the car.
  • Mechanic will make any adjustments if necessary.

How much does a Throttle Body replacement cost?

The cost of replacing the throttle body depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your throttle body replaced by ClickMechanic, by selecting your car at the top of this page!
