Removal & Installation



2.4L Engines

NOTE
Do not use solvent of any type when cleaning the gasket surfaces on the intake manifold and the throttle body assembly, as damage to the gasket surfaces and throttle body assembly may result. Use care in cleaning the gasket surfaces on the intake manifold and the throttle body assembly, as sharp tools may damage the gasket surfaces.


NOTE
Do not use any solvent that contains Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK). This solvent may damage fuel system components.


NOTE
DO NOT prop open the throttle blade with the ignition key in the ON position as it may set a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC).

  1. Remove the air cleaner outlet duct.
  2.  
  3. Disconnect the engine wiring harness electrical connector from the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC).
  4.  
  5. Remove the throttle body bolts.
  6.  
  7. Remove the throttle body .
  8.  
  9. Inspect the throttle body gasket, and replace if necessary.
  10.  

To install:

  1. Install the throttle body. Tighten the bolts to 89 in. lbs. (10 Nm).
  2.  
  3. Connect the engine wiring harness electrical connector to the ETC.
  4.  
  5. Install the air cleaner outlet duct
  6.  

3.5L Engine

NOTE
Do not use solvent of any type when cleaning the gasket surfaces on the intake manifold and the throttle body assembly, as damage to the gasket surfaces and throttle body assembly may result. Use care in cleaning the gasket surfaces on the intake manifold and the throttle body assembly, as sharp tools may damage the gasket surfaces.

  1. Remove the intake manifold cover.
  2.  
  3. Remove the air cleaner outlet duct.
  4.  
  5. Disconnect the engine wiring harness electrical connector from the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC).
  6.  
  7. Remove the heater inlet and outlet pipe nuts.
  8.  
  9. Remove the heater inlet and outlet pipe bracket from the throttle body studs. Reposition the pipes aside.
  10.  
  11. Remove the throttle body bolts and nuts.
  12.  
  13. Remove the throttle body.
  14.  
  15. Remove and discard the throttle body gasket.
  16.  

To install:

  1. Clean the gasket mating surfaces.
  2.  
  3. Install a new gasket.
  4.  
  5. Install the throttle body. Tighten the bolts and nuts to 89 in. lbs. (10 Nm).
  6.  
  7. Reposition the heater inlet and outlet pipes and install the pipe bracket to the throttle body studs. Tighten the nuts to 89 in. lbs. (10 Nm).
  8.  
  9. Connect the engine wiring harness electrical connector to the ETC.
  10.  
  11. Install the air cleaner outlet duct.
  12.  
  13. Install the intake manifold cover.
  14.  
  15. Perform the Throttle Learn Procedure as follows:
    1. Start and idle the engine in PARK for 3 minutes.
    2.  
    3. With a scan tool, monitor desired and actual RPM.
    4.  
    5. The ECM will start to learn the new idle cells and Desired RPM should start to decrease.
    6.  
    7. Turn the ignition OFF for 60 seconds.
    8.  
    9. Start and idle the engine in PARK for 3 minutes.
    10.  
    11. After the 3 minute run time the engine should be idling normal.
      NOTE
      During the drive cycle the check engine light may come on with idle speed DTCs. If idle speed codes are set, clear codes so the ECM can continue to learn. If the engine idle speed has not been learned the vehicle will need to be driven at speeds above 70 km/h (44 mph) with several decelerations and extended idles.

    12.  
    13. After the drive cycle, the engine should be idling normally. If the engine idle speed has not been learned, turn OFF the ignition for 60 seconds repeat the throttle learn procedure.
    14.  
    15. Once the engine speed has returned to normal, clear DTCs.
    16.
