BroWash24: I have a 88 Buick LaSabre 3800 V6 and it starts off running ok and then after a while it stalls, cranks up sometimes or after I wait a minute or two. The crankshaft sensor has been replaced, the fuel pump, and the mass air flow sensor seems to be doing ok. What do you think could be the problem?
Car1Sagan: Looks like an electronic throttle body, not a cable type. I don't think you are supposed to manually open the valve on an electronic throttle body, that you can mess things up. Is this one featured in this video an electronic throttle body?

Tom P: great video thanks :)
David Kinsey: Great video and thanks for posting. This seems to be the most often noted problem when the "Engine Failsafe Mode" light comes on in a Ford truck. It happened to me on my 2006 Expedition this morning so I will give this a shot and also used a bottle of Techron cleaner. This seems to be the air source, however, not the mixed fuel source as it would be with a carburetor. Any other tips or things to do at the same time? Air filter was changed a few months ago but I will check it, of course.
Tony Runyon: Will a dirty throttle body make a car or boat pop through the intake under load? I've done all the obvious drained the gas replaced all filters cap rotor plugs checked the timing cleaned the air filter. Any suggestions ? Indmar monsoon marine 350 injected
Osigwe Stella: it also shows ENGINE FAIL SAFE MODE before it stops. Stella Nigeria
Osigwe Stella: I bought a 2005 freestyle ford model and have not been able to enjoy this unique car due to these following problem. (1). when I go above 50 to 60MPH, it will lose power completely, the wrench and traction light goes of and I have to restart the car before it could get going (2). but does not cover up to 20KM before it stop again but when am on below 40MPH it would not stop (3) and sometimes it feels like the car is heavy. please tell me what problem is this and what can be done. Accept my warm regards. Stella from Nigeria
RAFTERMANCOLO: Sadly my truck is at Christian Brothers right now for just this issue. Thanks for posting the video as it did provide a clear understanding of the total issue. I'll also say this is the 2nd time I've used Christian Brothers, and so far, I'm VERY pleased with their work and especially their pricing..!
Uptown Photography: My mom's 2.8L 1989 Buick Regal (only has 50K miles on it) was surging when slowing down to stop and would stall. The Idle Air Control Motor was replaced, but she's still not running well. It doesn't surge as much but still stalls and hard to start at times now. A new problem also seems to be the car will run without giving it gas, meaning I was doing 47 MPH without giving the car gas on the highway the other day. Never did that before..Do you think it's a TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) or what else would you suspect. Thanks and great video...
roque arellano: What solution did you used to clean that throttle body ? Cleaning that crap, Could it the answers to my slight idle problem ?
sixstrangtommy: Question: If the throttle body is dirty will it affect the gas mileage too?? On a 05 qx56 can I clean it myself without a shop charging me hundreds??
Mateo Sepulveda: i found that battery problem out the hard way, when i got my moms 2002 subaru impreza wagon
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.
