Hello. The throttle body light comes on and then shuts down. After about 20 to 30 minutes it starts back up with the rpm going really high then going back down. Can only go another ten minutes and shuts back down again. The throttle body light came on so we replaced it. Still doing the same thing. Please help me find the answer to this problem

Hi Tanya,

Can you tell me which engine you have in the vehicle? 1.8L, 2.0L, 2.2L?

The reason is, they are all similar but do differ so it is important to make sure we are dealing with your engine.

Next, the fact that the light is coming on, there will be some codes that go along with that light. If is going to be needed to find out what those codes are. If you don't have a way to pull the codes, most part stores will pull them for you free of charge. Once you get those, can you let me know what they are and we will be able to get this figured out.

Thanks

Okay, great. Those will point us in the right direction. The reason we need to make sure which engine is because each of these engines listed above are all considered World engines but there are small differences. These engines have what is called an electronic controlled throttle body so when you say you replaced it, is this what you are talking about? Can you send me the part number of what you replaced when you send the codes? We just need to make sure we are talking about the same thing because these engines also have what is called a Flow Control Valve (FCV). This is responsible for controlling the amount of air that goes into each cylinder. If your throttle light is flashing, this could also be an issue.

Let's just start with the codes and I can let you know what the possibilities are. Thanks
