When you look down into the throttle body it is the plate that opens when you move the throttle lever (attached to the gas pedal cable)

Hight idle


Bad idle solenoid. Located on throttle body. It's black. Plugs in to wiring cable. You need a torx bit to remove. It's a cheap and easy fix. Also, get some throttle body cleaner and a tooth brush. Saturate the inside of the throttle body with cleaner and scrub out the black soot. Do this with throttle body in wide open position. Be sure to clean the edges of the butterfly good. They soot up and stick preventing throttle body from closing all the way.

I'd like to get step to step instructions on how to clean the throttle body in my 2010 Jeep Patriot


  1. Purchase "02 Sensor Safe" throttle body cleaner spray;
  2. Drive the vehicle a few miles, bringing it to full operating temperature, then park it in your driveway with the engine still running;
  3. Gain access to the throttle body, and hold your thumb on the butterfly linkage so that you can open the throttle butterfly when the engine begins to load;
  4. Begin by spraying throttle body cleaner spray on all linkages around the throttle body. If the engine begins to bog because it is aspirating throttle body cleaner, quickly open the throttle butterfly to keep the engine running.
  5. Once you have cleaned all around the throttle body, spray cleaner DIRECTLY INTO THE THROTTLE BODY, opening the throttle sufficiently to keep the engine running. It will run rough during this process but try not to let the engine stall.
  6. If the engine stalls, restart it, and continue cleaning the throttle throat until you see clean metal.
  7. Pour some fuel system cleaner into the gas tank and drive the car a little more before parking it. Try to find an excuse to accelerate hard, WIDE OPEN THROTTLE momentarily if safely possible (as when accelerating to merge into traffic on a highway).
  8. Drive back home.
  9. Done.

That could be a few things. First try cleaning the throttle body air intake butterfly, the check for any vacume leaks and last try changing the throttle position sensor.

1988 Jeep Wrangler starting problems. I replaced the ignition module, spark plug wires, coil, distributor module, and my jeep will not start. It gets fuel, turns over, but still not starting. It is a 1988...


you are saying it is getting spark, and fuel, right? If it is getting spark, and fuel in to the throttle body, check compression-make sure the Mass Air Flow sensor is plugged in, and double check your spark-you say you replaced all those ignition items, but do not say that you have spark.

1998 jeep wrangler 4.0...trying to locate the IAT sensor on throttle body...there are three sensors on throttle body...i know which on is maps


The IAT on your Jeep should be located on the intake manifold, directly behind the throttle body. It will be a screw in sensor with a two wire plug.

1989 jeep wrangler wont start it was running today for a while


Check the carb out sounds like its pushing to much fuel in butterfly could be stuck or choke on constant any warning lights on the dash i.e. engine managment light this could be the lambor sensor in the cat if this sensor has gone then it could be telling the fuel system to push more fuel in.

1988 honda accord dx hatchback won't idle when choke is off


find your cable that goes to your throttle body and look for a screw on a fixed plate, the screw should be touching a cam leaver for the throttle butterfly. if the is no screw it may have rattled out and you may have lost it. Or the idle is done by the computer i in the case you may have a fuilty sensor or computer.
