throttle body

  1. Gen 4 Dodge Ram
    I have a 2015 ram eco diesel and it wouldn’t start this morning and game me the “service throttle body” code. Is this cleanable on the diesel? Where is the throttle body on the motor?

    My '93 5.9 Just recently cleaned plugs, put in new battery. Starts with starter fluid and runs fine 2-3 seconds. There is fuel under pressure in the rail, but somehow apparently not getting thru injectors as I understand it. No discernible leaks. Any suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks!

    First post here and thanks in advance for any help. I have had Dodge trucks for years since my 1996 1500. I have had diesels and gas. Currently I am on a 2011 2500 ST 4x4 with 5.7 HEMI and 153k miles. I sold a 2004 HEMI 4x4 prior to this one and while it was a beater from AZ Game & Fish it was...

    I installed S&B CAI and Moes 87 mm ported TB this weekend. All went well with the exception that I didn't get a great seat/seal with intake tube, and top part of silicone coupler at the TB. After some fiddling, I did eventually get everything good and tight on Sunday afternoon. Yesterday...

    So i installed S&B CAI and Moes 87mm TB today. All went very smooth - until literally the last step. I cant get the CAI intake tube to seat properly at the the TB - see attached picture. I messed with it for a good 30 minutes before I had to quit to go do stuff with my lady. This isnt...

    How exactly does torque management work (I have a 2011 1500 4x4)? Does it limit engine power via ECM or does it control the throttle position? I monitor throttle position % with my Trinity, and noticed that while climbing a hill the throttle % will change when the truck downshifts even if I...
  8. LD RAM - General Discussion
    Hello all, I need some help. I have a 2005 Ram 1500 5.7L that I don't drive regularly anymore. I did drive it recently and I got the Red Lightening Bolt light and the truck was basically very slow to respond to the Throttle. Upon researching, I found that this light means that the Throttle...

    I wasn't sure where to post this so I just started a new thread. In early March I bought a 250k '96 ram with the 5.2. Today I switched to full synthetic and changed the three year old cheap filter to a K&N drop in. In the process I noticed the TB was holley branded, is that a factory thing or...

    I have a Fastman throttle body off my 2014 Challenger that I just learned works on our trucks(2013 and up). Its an 84/81 mm and worked great on the car. Would you use it? Don't know if I want to, what do you think?
  11. 5.7L V8 Specific Topics
    Hello! this is my first post on this website. I bought a used 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 from a relative and have been having problems with it stalling in the morning when coming to a stop at a light. This only occurs in the morning when the temperature is cold. The rest of the day it is fine. I have...
  12. Dodge Ram R/T
    I currently have a '14 RT with a muffler delete, vara ram air induction, diablo sport t1000 programmer, a 180 t-stat, and soon getting the oil catch can. I was wondering if getting the 87mm ported throttle body will show some acceleration gains with the stock intake or what intake would be a...
  13. Performance Mods - Engine - 5.9 Liter V8
    Hi everyone! I have a 1998 Ram 1500 sport with the 5.9 360, and I was wondering how a bigger throttle body (52mm) will effect my truck running lean and if it does how would I be able to correct the problem so I don't destroy my motor. Thanks!

    2015 Dodge Ram Sport / Hemi. Less than 2000 Km. It was 25*C outside today but I was sitting in traffic on my way back to Ottawa from Montreal. I had been sitting in stop and go traffic for a good 20 minutes before the first jolt started.... I was changing stations on the satellite radio...
  15. 5.7L (345 cu in) HEMI V8 Specific Topics
    Hey everyone, Just thought I would share a few mods I have done to my '14 RAM 2500 4x4. First, I purchased a Diablo programmer and tuned it to 91 octane performance tune. Don't have 93 octane in these parts. Second was a Catch Can. I was surprised, after just 500 miles I recovered about two...

    Well, after much procrastination I cleaned my throttle body. :w00t:
  17. 5.7L V8 Specific Topics
    So I have a 2004 5.7 Hemi and have decided to get a new throttle body. I have BBK shorty headers, megnaflow catback exhaust, K&N CAI and once I get the TB I'm getting a tune from Hemifever tuning. This will probably be the last mod I do. So which TB would be better for me? The 85 or 87? Also I...

    Hello, my 94 v8 5.2l 4x4 is stalling at highway speeds and has a low hard idle. I cleaned the throttle body and replaced the MAP, TPS, and IAC. so now at speeds below 60mph the truck runs fine, but at idle the truck still idles hard and low. Also sometimes the oil light flickers with the idle...

    Do TB spacers work? Are they worth the money and time? Also, if anyone has a TB spacer and a CAI installed, where there any issues with the CAI tubes lining up?
