Question: What is a throttle body? Would a bad one cause my car to stall out?

a throttle body is like a carburator except it is fuel injected and yes it would cause the car to stall but I would have it scan tested for codes first

Throttle body is what controls (and reads) the air intake. Yes, a bad one will cause stalling. Used throttle-bodies for this vehicle may be about $150. Labor to replace a throttle body is about $200.
