throttle body

So last night i got that reduced power code and went to autozone for them to test. Came back with code p2138 which they say is a throttle body sensor. Dealer has part for a 100 which i think isnt bad. Ive read other threads on this and cant come to any conclusion on it being isolated to any one thing. So my question is, do these have a certain life span and is their anything specific i should know before i try and put it on?

Nothing to technical. Throttle body is four bolts and a electronic connection to be taken off. I would diconnect the battery and reset the Ecu with the propper fuse pull. Ecu fuse pull to reset can be found in the DIY section here.

Very easy to do, I recommend a Bo White TB, the difference with throttle response is amazing!

Hadnt really put any thought into aftermarket due to it being so recent, just figured id go oem and get it running back to normal.

I think it has an O ring on the back.

Im assuming it opens up more, is it more noticeable in sound or just overall acceleration?

Reuse the existing gasket. At the same time I added the CAI inc intake and I wish I had done that months ago. Sound and throttle response was dramatic! Here is a picture of both!
