The throttle body is the "carburetor" area on fuel injected cars. Follow the
tube leading from the air filter leading to the engine. Where it connects
back to metal, that is the throttle body. Inside you will find a plate that
is connected to the accelerator. When you are at idle it is supposed to be
completely closed and the air to the engine goes through somewhere else (
EICV or EACV). When you step on the throttle, the plate opens up. What you
want to do is clean the area that seals the plate with "throttle body
cleaner". If it has never been dome before, it's very dirty. The best way,
despite the direction on the throttle body cleaner is to use a toothbrush
and a cloth. Be gentle and take your time. It is easy, spray it on, brush,
then gently wipe off the dirt. Mechanics call this "decarbonizing throttle
body. Good luck.
