Default Need New Throttle Body

Ok so for the past few weeks I've been having problems with my car, it doesn't want to accelerate going high speed or when I floor it, the rpms just drop. It wasn't bad before unless I was on a highway but recently it got worse and I can't drive 5 mins before it starts acting up. I took it to a mechanic a week ago and he said the upper intake manifold was cracked, it indeed was so I had it changed. But the problem persisted, I went to another mechanic today and he said the throttle body was bad and he quoted me $1,041.28 to get it fixed. But I think that might be a little high. Anyone know where I could get one and the cost of getting it reprogrammed at the dealer? I need as much info as I can get..thanks for reading this long post lol

So I don't need to take it to a dealer to have it reprogrammed or something? I can just buy one and install it and its gonna work fine?

It would appear that's what @EddyMaxx said he did in that thread. I don't know too much about it myself though.

Ok sounds good, yeah when I heard 1 grand I was like no way, that's way to much. But I'll buy that one off the link I guess(thanks BTW) and see if that fixes the problem. Do you guys have any idea how it could've gone bad?

No dealer needed. You can do the re-learn yourself per Eddy's post.
Wish I was closer to help you out dude. Sounds like they are just throwing parts at it :thumbdown:

There's a thread here somewhere about with the steps to do the re-learn. It's very specific.

@OP I presume the SES light came up when this problem started; did you find out what the exact error code was? Yes, the throttle body could be bad, but it could also be the MAF too.

It did come on, it came on last Friday. But I didn't get the code checked, ill get it checked today if I can. I had the MAF checked last week and they said it was fine.

I believe by that you mean it was tested fine, and not by visual inspection.

Dealer programmed my ass for 1k lol. All you need is an idle air relearn. I swapped a used throttle that I got for 80 bucks and worked like a charm. Its very simple.
