Throttle Switch Needed
« on: April 26, 2010, 01:15:06 PM »
What is a throttle switch?  It's located under the throttle body, that's the thing that the gas pedal wire attaches to (used to be a carburetor).  You can see the 2 Allen wrench screw tops if you lean over your engine and look down over the throttle body, you will see the 2 screw tops on a horizontal platform on the 'rear side' orientation.  Without taking out the throttle body this is all you can see of the throttle switch.

Mine is basically fried.  she gives jumping readings when she shouldn't and is causing havoc with my drivability, Decelerations etc.

I know I can open the VERY delicate switch and replace the wires and re-solder the whole thing ... but I'd rather not rely on my ability to open and rebuild a switch no bigger than a quarter.  Something that a watch smith should work on.

Anyone have one or even a throttle body I can buy from you?
Know of a parts van? 86-91 has the same part.
