The throttle body in a vehicle is an essential component as it is responsible for regulating the amount of air that enters the engine. A damaged throttle body or even a dirty and clogged throttle body will cause issues in the engine’s air/fuel mixture. A defective throttle body will also reduce the fuel economy of your car increasing the fuel intake. Finally, it can also lead to damage to other parts of the vehicle such as the catalytic converter. 

Due to this, it is imperative to replace the throttle body if you notice signs of damage to it. Replacing a bad throttle body quickly will help you preserve engine performance by making sure that the air/fuel ratio is maintained at all times. Having a throttle body in good condition is also important to make sure that the engine always has the right amount of power and performs well.
