About Throttle Body
Your throttle body is essentially the part of your fuel injection system that's responsible for controlling the amount of air being pumped into the engine. Generally located between your vehicle's air filter and the intake manifold, the throttle body uses your position on the throttle pedal to increase or decrease the amount of air going into the manifold based on where your foot lies. As your foot presses it down, it opens up, and as you take it off it closes. Simple, right?
In order to do this, a number of different parts make up your vehicle's throttle body, including bushings to keep all the moving parts of your throttle body in place and free from grinding against one another, and throttle position sensors to detect where your foot is positioned on the throttle and relay that information to the ECU.Here at Spares Box we have an excellent range of throttle body products to ensure that you get a responsive throttle feel and the performance that you've come to expect from your vehicle over it's lifetime.
