Think I found the problem to all my issues. Throttle body?

My gas pedal sticks, to where I have to punch it hard it even move.

I've been loosing acceleration power, as I've said on here before

By engine has been getting hot, so hot that my coil pack "exploded" (says my mechanic)

The engine was hesitating (but hasn't really done it since I got the new coil pack, only does it once I shift to park and just sit there)



I'm thinking this is because my throttle body needs to be cleaned. I've read a lot online tonight, and all my problems are mentioned in posts about a dirty throttle body.

I hope that the throttle body hasn't gone bad, and just needs to be cleaned.

Well, I'll see. My stepdad is gonna have to help me clean it and take a look at it sometime this week. (I know nothing about this stuff lol)

it's easy just two bolts and two nuts and it'll be off (i say two nuts because two of the four are studs not bolts)...then spray the fire out of the butterfly with cleaner. although i don't see this being the issue with your cable unless the spring system is shot

Oh! I know where that is! haha. And what exactly is a butterfly? Lol. I don't know what exactly I should be spraying.... And do I just spray it? or should I get a toothbrush and scrub in there? And then just put the screws and bolts back on and I'm good to go?

And btw, thanks for all your help

cleaning steps

- unhook throttle cable
-unplug throttle position sensor on the left
-unbolt throttle body
-pull it off the intake (may need a flat head and hammer since it's never been off)
-spray the insides with throttle body cleaner ( the butterfly is the flap inside the TB)
-manually open and close it while spraying to make sure no debris remains
-replace gasket if you destroyed the old one when taking TB off
-bolt back on TB
-reattach cable
-enjoy

Okay, what's the intake? Lol.

And what is the gasket?

I'm sorry I'm asking all of these questions, I'm just new to all of this. First car lol.

This is you intake. It sucks air into the car. It is located on the passengers side if the engine bay . It connects to the throttle body

This is your throttle body. Maybe a little bit different but it's what it looks like. It bolts on to the intake manifold

And here is the gasket. It stops air leaks and it is between the throttle body and intake manifold.

And the intake manifold is the gray metal thing in your center. My engine bay looks a bit different from yours though but the parts are exactly the same
