SOURCE: High Idle Issue

Sounds like the idle speed control motor is stuck, this could have been caused by the cleaning.

you could put the pickup on a cylinder pressure test and see if you have a bad valve causing the engine to pop.
you could have a bad wire or spark plug.
the timming chain could of went off a cog on the timming sprokets causing to pop.
gettin to much gas could cause it to.

SOURCE: 1996 1500 Silverado V6 4.3 gas mileage.

for better freeway mileage a low back pressure exhaust will help, also run tires at max pressure, this is around 45 PSI, in town there is little you can do.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the advice, I didn't know about the low back pressure exhaust system, I'll try it out."

06 chevy silverado 1500 LTZ 5.3lt code U0107 Dashboard show "engine power reduced " scan recommend replace Electronic Throttle Body Module. mechanic told me throttle body. This is completely different

I have worked on these and have found that there are issues with the throttle "body". You should be able to get one on ebay for around $80. They have wiring issues inside and get poor connections after warming up and cooling down repeatedly. Hope this helps.

Throttle body needs to be relearned. Need a oem level scan tool or equivalent. (Snap on versus modus) otc genisys or dealer tool. Once this is done the light will quit flashing and the truck will run correctly.

How do I adjust the throttle body

The throttle bodies on most newer cars are not adjustable for its idle speed. If the Check Engine Light is on, go to the nearest auto parts store and get them to pull the error codes from your car's computer. Post the codes back here and we can give you a better answer to your question

How do i clean a throttle body on a 08 chevy silverado v6 4.3l

There are a lot of good videos on YouTube to help with this. Although most are for the 5.3L engine the process and procedures are the same. The hardest and most time consuming part is removing the top cover and all the air induction tubing. As long as you have the time, skills and patience to do your own work this is not a terribly difficult task. With hourly rates as high as $125 hr I do all my own maintenance and use YouTube videos all the time. This one will give you a good idea of what's involved. Good luck!

Audi 2.6 1998 convertible idle problem revs at 1500 even when warm & engine humps, had 2 mechanics look into it cant solve it. Does not happen all the time. This is not an automatic.Can you please help.

Perform Throttle Relearn' with scanner. If relearn shows 'Failed' or 'Not Completed', possible the throttle body is bad. Not unusual for early T/B to fail in this manner.

Do not return to those two mechanics. Any decent import or Audi mechanic will have seen this before. Sometimes cleaning the throttle bore and plate will resolve this problem. Your freindly local parts store ( FLAPS.) will have throttle body cleaner on the self and then all you need is an old tooth brush and some cloth.

You need to check for intake vacuum leaks. Also did you have the battery disconnected before repair, if not disconnect the neg cable for 10 minutes to reset system to base settings.

05' Silverado Keeps dying out

Sounds like you have a dirty throttle body. This truck has whats called "drive by wire". There are no throttle cables. If you remove the air intake tube you can carefully clean with some carb cleaner and a rag. Reinstall the tube and let it idle for a few minutes so the computer can relearn the base idle. If this does not work you may have a defective throttle body.
