1999 Throttle Bodies
How the 1999 Mustang Throttle Body Affects Vehicle Performance
The throttle body is located in the engine bay and contains a small butterfly-shaped valve that regulates airflow into the engine. As you hit the gas pedal on your Mustang, the mechanical linkage responds and adjusts the airflow according to driving demands.
Additionally, sensors work with the throttle body, and Mustang engines are designed to ensure the proper air fuel mixture ratio is achieved. This allows the engine to adapt to various driving conditions and needs. Ultimately, these components work together to help your Mustang engine perform optimally.
The throttle body and associated sensors are susceptible to carbon buildup from the positive crankcase ventilation system. This carbon build up can hurt vehicle performance and lead to several undesirable side effects such as:
• Erratic Idling
• Throttle Hesitation
Due to the sensitive nature of these components and their direct proximity and connection to the engine, it’s important not to use solvents or harsh products when cleaning the 1999 Mustang throttle body. If you plan to use a cleaner for stubborn carbon deposits, it’s best to remove and disassemble the throttle body for a proper cleaning. You could just as easily upgrade and replace the throttle body at this point, adding some extra horsepower in the process.
