View Full Version : Oil filler tube removal (Throttle body stuck)

08-08-2004, 04:55 PM
I'm trying to take off my throttle body to replace the gaskets on it but it gets stuck on the oil filler tube. I loosened the clamps on the tube but it still won't budge. Any trick to this? I don't want to break it if there's a special way other than just prying and screaming at it.

u can remove the IAC valve and it will be alot easier, just two bolts 10mm, ur going to have to disconnect the injector that is in the way to remove the bolts. hope it helps

If i remember correctly there is a groove in the filler tube, so you kinda have to pull it straight up and off. i dont think it can be worked back and forth, but i could be wrong. spray a lil wd40 up from the underside of the tube if you can to ease the removal.

I already took the IAC off to put it on my Mustang. Still stuck with that.. I'll try the WD-40.
