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.
