Simply so, what does the throttle body do?
In fuel injected engines, the throttle body is the part of the air intake system that controls the amount of air flowing into the engine, in response to driver accelerator pedal input in the main.
Also, can you drive with a bad throttle body? If you have a bad throttle position sensor, your car will not perform well or safely. Driving with a bad throttle position sensor may also cause problems in other related systems in your car, which will mean additional repair bills.
Moreover, how much is a throttle body?
The average cost for a throttle body replacement is between $577 and $691. Labor costs are estimated between $92 and $117 while parts are priced between $485 and $574.
How can you tell if you have a bad throttle body?
When a throttle body is not functioning correctly, some noticeable characteristics may be poor or very low idle. This can include stalling when coming to a stop or very low idle after starting, or even stalling if the throttle is quickly pressed (resulting in the throttle body plate opening and closing very quickly).
