The dealer tech told me he couldn't balance the throttle bodies on my 2002 998 because the throttle linkage was worn. He didn't go into details

Other than to say he couldn't adjust it because one or the other would be off. Does this make sense? If so it appears Ducati doens't sell the the linkage separately only the complete throttle body assemby with a price tag of $2300 (up here). I did find a 2004 999s throttle body assembly on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/DUCAT...3286.m20.l1116 Looks a little different from mine, but I thought the 999 and 998 are supposed to be the same motor. Can anyone tell me with 100% confidence that it will fit an function without significant modification? Or at least if the throttle linkage can be transplanted?,The linkages are different between a 998 and a 999. From what I can remember you can make them fit but with a hell of a lot of mods..... people who have done it may help. Also check out Gotham Cycle breakers in Florida, he had a write up between what models can be transplanted. (Dont have the link sorry) The linkage is worn????? Can you post a picture to show which part he thinks is worn please? By how much will they not sink? Is this on vacuum check or on CO check of each cylinder? Has he done a TPS reset on the setup? Does this guy have a DDS unit? (Basically a hand held computer to check the brains of the bike) Is this being tested with new spark plugs fitted?,,,

My hhr 2006 i try to clean the throttle body but now the relenti is to high how i reprogram the throttle body


You need to use the Tech II scan tool from GM to perform this relearn process. You can try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes, but you more than likely will need the relearn procedure done at your local dealer.

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.

Can't tune throttle bodies on 2008 triumph america


there is an easy way to do this,,,take off the throttle bodies,,,
place a lenth of thin strate whire into both throttel bodies and gentely close the throttles on this whire,,, the butter flys should just tuch very gentely both bits of whire if not adjust the butter flyes till both bits of whire fall out under there own weight,,,and then its bingo,,, job done!!!

good luck,, was this any help to you?

I have code p2176 2004 gmc envoy. is the tps sensor dab?


This code comes up as a safety measure. It is telling you that either the gas pedal is hanging up, struck ect... or the butterfly in the throttle body is hanging up, not returning to center.
Please let me know aht you find.

My 2003 Ford Escapes gas pedel sticks when you try to take off.


The most common reason for this is a buildup around the butterfly valve in the throttle body. Under the hood, find the intake hose that runs from the air cleaner box to the intake of the engine. Remove the hose from the throttle body.

On the inside of the throttle body, you will see the butterfly valve which opens when you press the gas pedal. Clean the throttle body with a suitable cleaner such as Throttle Body Cleaner, which can be found at your local parts store. An old toothbrush and rags work well for cleaning the valve and behind the valve. Dry everything up and reassemble.

Other reasons could be sticking linkages at the throttle body that actuate the butterfly valve, or something as simple as your floor mat catching the pedal when depressed.

Throttle bodies linkage worn


after having the valves done and belts replaced that my Throttle bodies can't be sync'd because of worn linkage see pic. I have looked around and haven't read of this happening often. Sounds like a rare problem. Anyone know of this happening? I can get the linkage rod but where it connects to the butterfly valve is worn or so im told , i get the bike back today and will check it out. If the linkage is stuffed i am thinking 2nd hand Throttle bodies as an option but am not sure about the interchangeability of the 916 748 996 bodies ,the 2nd hand bodies around are mostly 748 916 . Can these be used or am i waiting for a set of 996?,If he can't sync it because the linkage is worn - you need a new tech Ask him, og diy - use only one idle screw - on the TB's where the cable is attached. On the other TB - just remove the screw, and you will be fine After this - the spring will eliminate the slak on the linkage. Sync is a bit different - both airscrews in same position, and adjust the lenght on the linkage to your TB are in sync.,,,
