I wouldn't recommend the throttle hangfix
#84856 - 11/10/02 07:42 PM

Hey guys. If anybody has that thorotte hang problem on their duratec V6's and want to fix it don't do it because it's a bad idea. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It's ghetto rigged. It consists of using a 1/2 pipe cap woth a hole drilled in the middle and you put it in a 3/4 hose that goes from the thorottle body hose to the intake manifold. When I did that, the hang is going. That's good! I started it up this morning and it almost stalled out on me becuase it was at very low idle. I has a little miss to it also. I didn't have a cold idle either. So I took the pipe cap out of the hose and I started it and I got the cold idle back. Somebody that put that idea on here is a piece of [censored]. If you want to know more about it, click on FAQ and after that click on Common problems and coplaints and scroll down to "Rev falls slowly during shifts and when backing off thorottle". If anybody did the fix can you please tell me the results that you got?I did everything right. As long as the car doesn't stay at high idle when backing off the thorotte why bother? As long as it doesn't idle very high when it's still.

Disagee!
Did the TH fix over year ago. Never experienced any of the problems you describe.
Sounds as if you may have made the hole too small.

ray mcnairy is a piece of **censored**??

dude, STFU and learn something before attempting.

if you would have searched around to see what the results are from the ceg'ers that have done it, you would have known that you have to play around with different sizes of the hole in teh cap to get it right.

I made the hole a little bit bigger and it acts normal like it doesn't have the pipe inside of it. I put it in flush. What do you think i'm doing wrong besides the whole.

I didn't have a cold idle this morining when I started it and I made the whole a little bit bigger and it thorottle hanging again. Did you reset the computer after you did it?

Hey I have a question, when you first start up your car does it still rev up to cold idle? I'm sorry that I said that ray mcnairy is a piece of [censored]. How big did you drill your hole?

hey man - no problem....
we're all here to help out - just when you say things like that about one of the true pioneers of this site, its not cool at all.

to be honest with you - my 1996 SE does not have the throttle hang problem too bad so I've never done it on that car. My 98 SVT, has the BAT Intake pipe which takes care of the problem so I can't help you with personal experience.

maybe someone else can hop in here and help out.
