This must be diagnosed by a dealership. The Electronic Throttle body is not servicable. There are many factors that have to be checked before condeming the throttle body. The engines computer controlled components and sensors are sensitive to loose connectors, moisture and corrosion on wiring terminals. Any engine modifications can also affect engine performance. Using a throttle body spray cleaner will damage an electronic throttle body. Calibration of the throttle body may also be necessary. The throttle position sensor is located on the accelerator pedal assembly and is a direct link via the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to the electronic throttle body.
