Question about Cars & Trucks
This is what i found about code f85
QUESTION: 1991 Sedan Deville, 4.9 port injection
Car runs great until outside temp reaches 92 deg. or above. the car will start to cut out under load (take off or hill. if i pull over the car will idle fine rev the engine to a steady high rpm and it will cut out. i had a code e44 (o2 sensor rich)so i replaced o2 sensor with no effect. the other code received was f85 (Throttle body service required). I have checked all connectors and hoses attached to the throttle body. all ok. looking inside throttle body there ar two tubes under the flaps one is totaly restricted with a black buildup and the other partly blocked. Not sure what these tubes do and if that could cause engine to cut out when hot and under load. any ideas?
ANSWER: You found your problem which is this black residue which when hot turns to a jelly substance and blocks the idle air passage. You need to clean all that residue from the throttle body and do not forget to spray the small hole in the side of the throttle body just behind the throttle plate.
