I need to know where the throttle body actuator is in the engine, I need to clean it, but I can't find it. I haven't had an auto shop since the 1990s and we had actual carburetors.


Thank you,
Steven

Hello,

The throttle actuator is located at the end of the intake tubing. It is mounted on the intake manifold.

Here is a helpful guide to cleaning the actuator:

I have attached the diagrams below for your reference.
You did not mention the engine size, so the instruction provided is for the V6 engine. If you have a 4-cylinder engine, please let me know and I can provide instructions for that as well.

Let me know of any questions.
Thank you.

Yes, the basic location is same at the end of the intake tubing and mounted on the intake manifold. However, the setup is different, and the replacement procedure is different.

I have attached the process for the 2.0L as well.
