Default How much would you pay for a Throttle Body Service?

How much would you pay for a Throttle Body Service? Local garages here charges $100 here!

How about you guys? I'm just trying to find out how much so I can cut a deal.

Thanks.

According to repair pal:

Quote:

As an engine operates, it deposits carbon and sludge from the PCV system into the throttle body which, after a year or so, will have an effect on how well the vehicle starts and how well it idles in cold and warm conditions. It will also affect how well the vehicle idles with different loads applied (e.g. heater and air conditioning) and how smoothly the vehicle accelerates from a stop.

When a throttle body is serviced, a technician cleans or wipes out the bore of the throttle body and the throttle blade itself. Then, he/she checks and adjusts the minimum air rate and checks (and adjusts if needed) the TPS sensor. The technician then performs a computer controlled idle relearn procedure. When this is all done properly, the vehicle should idle as if it was just driven off the showroom floor.

Vehicles with a computer controlled "drive by wire" throttle body can be CAREFULLY wiped clean. Then, an electronic throttle body adaption relearn procedure can be performed. This can really improve the smoothness of the idle in all stages of vehicle operation.

Another added bonus from this service is that it keeps the computer controlled idle valve clean which, if left uncleaned, will get "carboned up" to the point where it will have to be replaced, which can cost hundreds of dollars.

Checked at Honda Service Center and they were charging $100 for a Throttle Body Service.

Will try to find a specialty garage.

Here's an interesting article:

What is a Throttle Body Service and Why is it Important

Throttle body service is the throttle body cleaning and wiping of the bore and throttle blade. The service is important in order to keep the automobile running smoothly, efficiently, and safely.
What is it?

The throttle manages the flow of fluid and can increase or decrease the engine’s power. It does not control the power or the speed of the engine as is thought by many people. During a throttle body service, a technician cleans out or wipes the bore and throttle blade. When this is done and the air rate is checked and adjusted, a sensor does an idle that is computer controlled. If this is properly done, the car should operate in the idle mode as if it were new.

There is carbon and sludge that the PCV system deposits into the throttle body as the engine operates. This carbon and sludge is cleaned out during the throttle body service. How well the engine operates about a year after service is determined by the way the automobile starts, how well it idles when it’s cold or warm, and when accessories such air conditioning and heat are operating. The carbon and sludge will also affect the way the car starts from a total stop. A service such as this will keep the idle valve, which is computer controlled, clean. If it is left dirty and covered with carbon, it will have to be replaced and such a replacement can be costly.

An important part of the engine is the throttle body, which is part of the air intake system. The air intake system increases the amount of oxygen used for combustion with fuel. You can either gain or lose power with the air intake system depending on the vehicle’s ram. The throttle body is a part of this air intake system. Keeping the throttle body in good operating condition will keep the car running without costly occurrences.
Importance of the Throttle Body.

Careful and regular throttle body service will keep the emissions from the engine’s exhaust system in check. There is also increased sound when the throttle is applied by way of the accelerator. If the vehicle is operated at lower speeds, there is less noise coming from the engine. However, at higher speeds, the engine tends to become very noisy. These two statements make the throttle body service important in itself, as it makes the automobile more environmentally friendly. A complete throttle body service is recommended every 15,000, 40,000, and 75,000 miles to be sure that the automobile is functioning properly.

It is most important to have the throttle body serviced regularly to avoid the high cost of replacement. The cost of throttle body service or replacing the throttle body varies with the year, make, and model of the car. But, no matter what that year, model, or make may be, replacement is not inexpensive. Excluding the cost of replacing the throttle body for the moment, what is perhaps even more important, is to have the throttle body serviced regularly to keep your car running smoothly and efficiently.

I want to buy the best vacuum cleaner for hardwood floors**. As for the details: I want a vacuum cleaner without a bag. This is, of course, a moot point, because many consider vacuum cleaners with a bag to better cope with their duties, but still. the brand is not very important to me, quality is more important to me even if it is some kind of unpopular manufacturer.

Roof cleaning is not an easy job. I have been doing this for my own house for a long time instead of hiring professional cleaning service.

I have tested different roof cleaning solutions over time and finally found wet and forget roof cleaning products are the best roof cleaner for moss mold mildew and others. 

Can anyone tell me is they any good solutions in market right now better than this product?

Wonder why people search for carpet cleaning machine for pets urine? Dirt, stains and other messes are an unending part of our lives, especially if we have pets. When you find an unsightly stain on your lovely new carpet, couch or car upholstery you want to clean it up without leaving the stain.



And that very moment you look for the best carpet cleaning alternates. With a multitude of carpet cleaners, finding the best is easier said than done.*Can someone please tell me which pet carpet cleaner should i buy? I am a bit confused about it now.
