I'd bring it back to the shop that put in the throttle body and have them check to see if the replacement was defective or failed. If not, you may have a bad throttle position sensor [part of the gas pedal] I'm assuming it worked fine for a while after the repairs with no problems then suddenly started acting up again. I've replaced a bunch of throttle bodies but only one position sensor so far. There's always the chance that there's a bad wire somplace or some other more exotic problem but I'll bet you'll find it at either the sensor or throttle body. Good luck, hope this helps!
Do a bench test on the starter. Remove starter, hook up a ground cable to starter, and positive to two prongs on starter and it should spin. You can do this in vechile too but not suggested due to risk of injury. If it doesn't spin, probally a solenoid or the starter it self. Unlikely but possible.
If you liked the Options on the Old Truck, I would go with the 09. The Tundra is a GREAT Truck But, Will not have the Options that you Like on the Chevy. In Pro's and Con's---- The Tundra does have Better Service and a Better Warranty along with a LOT of Options FREE that you will pay Extra for on the Chevy. I have ALWAYS been Hard Core Chevy-- But, I Purchased a 2007 Scion Xa for my Wife (Toyota Built) and we have had NO Problems and there are NO Recalls and NO Customer Complaints! Just hope that the same goes for the Tundra. Chevy has had a Lot of issues and Recalls on a Lot of their Products But, I still love them! Bottom line is, Purchase what you like But, Do the Research Online first! Just type in Recalls for ............. and Search it.
The official name would be the fender. The panel above the rear wheels are referred to as the quarter panels. You will probably pay a lot more money than you need to by ordering an OEM part online. I would call your local salvage yards and ask them if they have a fender off a similar car. I think the 1999-2005 parts are interchangeable. It will still need to be painted by a trusted paint shop but I still think you will save money and your son's car will still look real good!
