Throttle Body Gasket

By Daniel Dillon, January 20, 2009

The throttle body gasket is gasket made of paper or aluminum that is sandwiched between the throttle body and the intake manifold. Its purpose is to provide an air tight seal between these components so that incoming air can not bypass the throttle body. This gasket is often replaced during a throttle body service.
