Throttle Body - Butterfly?

I assume you mean at idle... if so pretty much yes. If it is open you can hardly see it. Here is a pic (pre-cleaning) of one we took out of a Boxster (rough idle problem). It is basically the same egas unit your car has. BTW... once it was cleaned up the car ran fine.

Loren,

yes at idle. While the car was off, I took off the throttle body boot to check and see how clean the throttle body is and I could swear that the butterfly stays slightly open. For example if you push the butterfly from the bottom inward it will move forward a bit? Is that normal? If not what needs to be done to adjust/correct. Plus, what symptoms could result if the butterfly is slightly open during idle? Thanks!

Unlike the older non egas throttle bodies there is no idle air bypass valve. On the older cars the solenoid controlled valve let air in through a passage the bypassed the butterfly. On egas cars I think it is all controlled by minuet movement of the butterfly. So, it it would not surprise me if it were open a fraction. Yes, you can push on the butterfly valve and open it almost horizontal. That is how we cleaned this one - a little carb cleaner and a lint free rag while holding the butterfly open.

Loren,

Thanks! I used some Throttle body cleaner (is that essentially the same as carb cleaner?).

by the way, how do I know if I have a egas or non-egas Pcar? I have a 2000 C2 Tip.
