SOURCE: Choke sticks in winter

clean the throttle body and flap. with the a tooth brush and throttle body cleaner from the parts store.this should fix the sticking im not sure about your stalling problem. also after you clean the throttle body and flap. it will be hard to start at first until all the cleaner burns out of the engine. its normal and will clear up in a minute or so. make sure you clean both sides of the flap. by holding the throttle open while brushing and spraying into throttle body. good luck.

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

Where is idle adjustment screw on 1989 nissan sentra


on the throttle body. the gas pedal cable from inside the car leads under the hood on drivers side to the throttle body. throttle body is attached to the intake.
*****you should not have to adjust your idle. itusually means that there is a bad sensor if your idle has changed suddenly,****
what exactly is the car doing? ex.fluctuating rpms?, low constant idle?, high idle?

Idole to high


If your idle is too high it can mean a few things with computer controlled engines. Most common problems relate to the sensors in your throttle body being dirty or faulty. If after your disassemble your throttle body and clean the throttle body and sensors you still have the issue you can adjust your idle through the Idle Adjustment Screw.

How do I repair the P1121, TPS on a Kia 2004 Sorento?


The Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) for Sorento & Sedona models. Some Sorento & Sedona vehicles may exhibit diagnostic trouble codes P0121 and/or P1121. This condition mainly occurs in high ambient or desert areas, and can be related to the occasional increase in contact resistance due to excessive wear of the inner elements of the TP sensor. This bulletin describes the proper service and adjustment procedure for replacing the TP Sensor. - Service Procedure Replacement Procedure: 1. Turn ignition OFF. Remove engine cover and disconnect electrical connector from TP Sensor. 2. Remove two (2) retaining screws from TP Sensor and remove from throttle body. 3. Install new TP Sensor to throttle body.

How do you set the throttle position sensor on 1999 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 litre


That sensor is not adjustable. It slides onto the throttle shaft and is screwed in place to the throttle body. Idle speed is controlled by the computer by adjusting air flow through the idle air control valve. If the idle is too high (you did not say) first clean the throttle body bore and plate, then if necessary remove the control valve, cleaning out the passage in the throttle body and carefully cleaning the valve itself, without turning the plunger. If that does not help, you will need to do electrical testing on that and other components to find out what's going on as well as checking all vacuum hoses attached to the engine for cracks or leaks.

I got a 1542 code on my bmw


p1542 Pedal Position Sensor Electrical.
Clean the throttle body really good.
In your case, check to see of the throttle butterfly (plate) is obstructed and then adjust the cable at the throttle body end per your manual specs. The adjustment is fairly simple. Otherwise.... I think it is getting to be new throttle body time.

Honda civic 2000- idle speed is high even in park or neutral


Check your coolant level. The Idle air control valve works with coolant in the system and will produce high idle it there is very little coolant. Also check to see if there are any vacuum lines disconnected. They can also cause the high idle.

High Idle


The Throttle screw is located on the throttle (obiously) its in a clinderical shaped channel located on the throttle just oposite or obliquely opposite the the throttle body position sensor. In some mazda vehicles (IN TRINIDAD) you need to loosen the throttle body position sensor and slightle adjust it eighter to the right or left to tuen the idle (For electronic controlled axcelleration) in some cases it can be adjusted via an ODB2 diagnostic tool (only in some vehicles that has electronic controlled axcelleration)

You can tell what type your vehicle is by looking for an axcelleration cable connected to the throttle body. If the throttle body has a cable it isnt electronically controlled and has an idling screw. If there is no cable but wires to the position sensor its electronic.
