The throttle body on my 5.4litre 99 ford truck has black gewy gummy gunk in it what's the cause of that

thee will always be oily smoke coming back past valves from the pcv valve outlet when the engine is stopped
if you have a problem air filter then any fine dust will mix with that vapour and produce what you have
check the air cleaner and entire air filtration system for leaks including the air filter
The latest news from all manufacturers is , air filters are no longer cleaned but replaced with new units

What would cause a 2002 Tahoe to die when you let off the throttle?

1) Bad/clogged Idle Air Control (IAC) especially if you have a oil and gauss air filter.
2) Air leak in the duct between the air filter and Throttle body.
3) Bad or clogged Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF).
4) Bad Throttle Position Sensor (TPS).
If no throttle cable the throttle body assembly..

I have a 93 Mercury Tracer with a Ford 1.9L engine. About 2 months ago it started idling high and low when I am parked or at a stop light. After checking my air filter, I noticed that it was sucking oil...

put a can of seafoam in your fuel tank at your next fill up after doing the following
replace your pcv valve
replace all the loose, worn, broken, or missing vacuum hoses one the entire engine
clean the air breather tubes, the whole air cleaner, and if necessary the air filter
that should do it for you

What does a major tune up for a 2004 chevy impala consist of? What should be done and needs to be done?

New spark plugs, oil and oil filter, transmission flush and fill, fuel filter, air filter, coolant flush and fill, clean throttle body plate and bore, clean the MAF sensor, replace any loose or cracked vacuum lines, PCV valve, new air filter, new battery.

99% of the time all you should ever need for a tune up is new spark plugs, and a clean air filter and throttle body. But since your inquiry indicated "major" I gave it more critical thought.

Just replaced throttle body on 2006 Aveo. Engine idles rough and will not acccelerate over 20 MPH. Any suggestions?

Hello angel 003801, if the car was running rough, and had acceleration issues before you changed the throddle body, I strongly recommend you get a new air filter. Many people are unaware that the air filter is like lungs to your engine, your engine needs a good mix of fuel and air to perform at it's peak. Also, most 10 minute oil change companies do not change the air filter, at best, some of them may take it out, hit it against something to clean some of the dirt out, and then put it back in.

If the engine seems to run better after putting in the throttle body I would still change the air filter if you haven't done that in a while. Also, make sure that the throttle body is mounted securely with no leaks, look around the area of the throttle body and make sure you didn't accidently knock of a vacuum hose, ( vacuum hoses are very small, usually black hoses, and there are several in the general area of the throttle body. If you should find a small hose that has one end that is not hooked to anything, look around for a small nipple that it may have come off of.

My goal was to provide timely and accurate information. If this has been helpful to you, please consider taking a second to click on the, " this was helpful ", button.
Thank you!

Vehicle is used for mail delivery. outside temps in the 90s. two&half hours into delivery the engine stalls periodically. after few cranks it starts. temp gauge & radiator ok. oil pressure gauge is...

Clean your Throttle body with throttle body cleaner or Deep Creep made by Seafoam. When the carbon and varnish build up in your throttle body get's hot, it gums up the IAC (Idle air control) valve which help moderate your engine's rpm to keep it from stalling.
If the IAC is stuck due to the gum of the carbon and varnish in your throttle body, you have stalling issues which you have described. Start with that and replace your air cleaner filter since your going to clean your throttle body.
Good luck and be safe, thank you for using fixya and post us back.
