The throttle body is the part of your car that directs air into the fuel system to allow combustion to occur. It is an important component, because if it isn’t functioning correctly, it will inhibit engine performance.

In most cases it comprises of a relatively simple valve; as you put your foot down on the pedal, it allows more air in, making the engine work more. Problems occur when this vale doesn’t operate as it should. This could be when the valve is not opening and closing, or if the chamber has become clogged with dirt and debris.
