Kar Ser: I got a Hitachi TB for $60 online..installing is the easy part..its the Idle re-learn that's going to set me back $160.00. It seems ONLY Nissan has this scan software..tried everyone in my hood to see if I can lower the Nissan price..but it looks like i'll have NO choice but to deal with Nissan (again).

Kar Ser: one other thought..I wouldn't mind going to take the car for second opinion (with old TB) but at $160 a pop, that's not cheap..i'm still trying to find a regular mechanic who has the Nissan software to do the idle re-learn, some garage in my area must have this software other than Nissan...cause I know Nissan sells it as well.

Kar Ser: going back to a dealer with old TB would mean that IF it fails second time, I would be forking over $$ for 3 tests in total..i found the new TB cheap enough its a Hitachi brand and have confirmed it will fit my car. So I think putting new one on, and going back to dealer is most prudent step..i am assuming by the last remark you made on last response, you agree as well. Incidently, do you think dealer would charge me full price upon return for the second re-test ?

Kar Ser: would you believe they wanted to charge me $1,200 parts and labour to replace the TB!! I found the tb new (oem) for $60.00 + Ship online. So im not sure I follow you on a couple of the points..you are suggesting i replace the part anyway right ? And, IYO do I need to get the idle re-learn done on the new TB ? Lastly, do you forsee any issues with me trying to install the new TB? Obviously, there will be no cleaning involved this time.

Kar Ser: i'm sorry to hear that..hope you are doing better.
Well, I don't think it was that simple as a vacuum leak.. I took it to Nissan, they are saying that while I cleaned the TB I removed the thin coating/film in and around the butterfly and therefore it failed the idle re-learn, they thankfully reduced their fee from $165 to half, because it failed the test. I used TB spray to cleaned it, AFTER I disconnected everything. They advised I get a new TB so I luckily found an oem online for really decent price (new), so my question now is, will I still need to pay again for the idle re-learn, even with a new TB ?

Kar Ser: Hi can you please advise..i followed precise instructions as suggested for my 07 NissanAltima. There was a lot of dirt in the throttle body, I disconnected battery prior to pulling it out completley, did everything as suggested...BUT I now have a HIGHER RPM than before I took the throttle out...I cant drive the car now because of the high rpm..I pulled and put it back exactly as I should, all wires and hoses connected to their rightful place..what could have caused a worsening of the rpm, I don't understand ??

TheEliminator: So it's safe to spray the throttle while the truck is running?

BlackMafioso: Omg TY I'll try it on my next day off I took my car to a mechanic and this fool tried to tell me I have a blown head gasket and wanted $1500 .after that I had 0 trust in the guy.  My head gasket is perfectly fine, I guess because I'm young he tried to take advantage of me but I wasn't falling for it, I had no milky oil, no overheating. no coolant loss,no white smoke, no oil in my coolant "which he told me I did" but when I checked it it was still pretty clean. Also I had a coolant flush 2 weeks in advance I'm pretty sure I would of found out then, But my car does everything in the description I guess that's why it never happens on the highway, getting more air I guess. thx for the video and maybe I wont have to pay another mechanic $100 to be lied to.

Jeremy Boney: I am going to try this on my subaru impreza 06 rs I am having idle issues and am starting with the cheapest first. Anyone have a great safe throttle body cleaner brand for my unusual boxer aluminum engine?

Robert Hughes: I'm not seeing the solution to my problem no matter where I look. I've been experiencing throttle issues with my 2004 F-150 5.4 3 valve V-8 98,250 miles. My truck idles fine, however, it has a "hesitation" when I'm driving down the road. It's much like the old carb  motors with that throttle hesitation. It acts like it's starving for air or fuel. Sometimes when I push down on the throttle just a little bit, the motor starts to "surge".  I changed out the fuel filter, used a fuel additive to clean out any residue in the fuel lines, but to no avail. I'm wondering if the throttle body is the problem or maybe something else. I get no codes which is why the dealer says he can't help me. There's no recorded codes in the PCM. What do I do?

Missy Mcbee: I have a 2001 Cadillac Deville, idles high we cleaned the throttle body still having problems... Sometimes we drive it its ok and then it starts again and when we put it in park Im scared its going to mess up the Transmission, We're at a light or stop sign and it wants to keep going... I dont know wht to do its costly... 

Natalie Cotero: Ok so I have a problem I changed the spark plug wires on my 2001 f150 4.2l v6 2wd and I sprayed some throttle body cleaner and when I went to go start it it killed all my power why is that?

jleal11: Does the throttle body need to be calibrated after the cleaning since it was manually opened? 

Team Alpha (Gaming): Should you not unplug the TB? I've heard stories of some TBs having a mechanism to return the butterfly back to normal position, thus cutting off any fingers in there :( 

jesus gutierrez: i have a  2003 Yukon that would die when making a turn, and it would run rough at a red light, i saw your video and went out and got a can of throttle body cleaner and an old tooth brush, I cleaned the throttle body and replace the air filter and now my truck runs like new again!! it was an easy and cheap fix, I spend a total of 23.00 dls. for the cleaner and air filter, thank you for sharing the video

DysfunctionalBubble: That's dirty? It looks nice and new compared to mine. My 2004 optra is coated on the top visible bits with a darkish layer of tobacco colored stuff. The sort of thing that you see in side of the engien on older cars. I have no oil burning problems, so i don't know why its so dirty. It makes this one look like it's brand new.

MrSlackerSteve: Just going to say... many auto manuals explicitly state not to scrub your throttle body with any kind of brush as it can remove a protective layer of coating. Please check your specific cars manual but you would be better served spraying with throttle body cleaner and wiping with a clean dry rag to be on the safe side.

k CARVING: hey guys  husbands 2006 , mercury montego was recalled called ford got it fixed for nothing some 650 . ford recalled them you don;t have to be the first owner  GO FOR IT,waiting for them to recall the tranny now  

Macmillium: I would be careful not to open by hand some electronic throttle bodies, as it may not like it. I did that on a 2004 Titan and few weeks later the MIL was on, the idle was very bad and acceleration was not smooth, so I had to recalibrate the TB... Should had use the pedal with the key on as he suggested here. Also not to use any cleaner as it may destroy the coating on the throttle plate. In my van the pcv was never replaced, so by 150k miles the whole intake was dirty, so I took apart to clean it up. Thank you for posting this video.
