The throttle body is the component in the air intake system which controls the amount of the air flowing into the engine, in response to the driver input. Since the accelerator is commonly called as the gas pedal, it would be fitting for the throttle body to be described as an air pedal. More commonly, the component is placed between the air filter box and the intake manifold and is attached to or placed just near the mass airflow sensor. The biggest piece within the throttle body is the throttle plate which is a butterfly valve that controls the air flow. A throttle body is somewhat more like the carburetor in a non-injected engine. The vehicles with throttle body injections, which is called the CFI in your Ford, locate the fuel injectors in the throttle body, permitting an older version engine to be transformed from carburetor to fuel injection without too much engine design alterations.
The throttle body's best preventive maintenance is to keep it always clean as possible. Observing so will aid in the engine drivability. If you notice a rough idle, stumbling initial acceleration or even stalling while the engine has fully warmed up, the throttle body may be dirty. Once you take a peek inside the throttle body, you would most probably be surprised at the dirt, varnish and gum that have accumulated inside it over time. It would be better to see a dirty throttle body than seeing a damaged one.
