It's the black part with the electric connector, left upper side of the throttle body. ;)

It's the black square piece on the upper top left side of the throttle body. It has two screws and a electrical connector that remove it. It gets filled with carbon. I had idle surging issues on my old 996. RFM suggested I clean it and it fixed my issue. Very simple job. I believe RMF suggests to use brake fluid as a cleaner. I used Carb cleaner and it did the trick. Car ran perfectly after that.

Good luck!

E-gas started with DME 7.2?

For an e-gas car, is there a comparable place that could cause a similar problem?

Yes, egas started with DME 7.2.

A dirty throttle body is even more of a concern on egas cars because the idle is controlled by minutely opening the throttle butterfly. And, if that gets dirty and gummed up you get a bad idle.

i cleaned the throttle body and the idle valve really good, and it seems that it did the trick.

hasnt turned off ever since that.

i hope that this was what was causing it and its been resolved

Excellent

After reading this thread, I went out and cleaned mine as preventiative. Wasn't too bad, but there was some black soot stuff top and bottom. I don't have any idle control valves 'cause it is e-gas, but I will start doing this every year I think, as part of my regular maintenance. I took my throttle body compleley off to do it. On mine, it was just four bolts and one electric connector.

just a quick update, after the cleaning it has not turned off :)

You will need to wait for the appropriate number of drive cycles or turn the CEL off with a scan tool.
