Whr is the throttle body located? And can i clean it myself
bro its located where the plastic air intake box connects to the engine.the first metal part there is infact the throttle body.you cannot properly clean it yourself.get it opened and clean by a mechanic.i havent heard a desi word for throttle body.mechanics call it "butterfly' or "throttle body".
my friends city 06 150k driven has developed a strange problem when the engine is running and you take out the dip stick there is smoke coming out of it also the same with oil cap on the tappet cover... now there is no smoke from the exhaust so i guess the rings r fine,, but its lagging power,,, the only way i can think of smoke from the cylinder reaching chamber and head at the same time could be that the head gaskit has developed a leak between a cylinder and a oil pass so when ever it sparks the pressure is sent to the chamber and head through the oil passage,, now the real issue i showed it to a so called trusted mechanic he told me the engine is gone and this car causes many problems in rebuilt so its better if u replace the engine,,, and i was like WTF,,, i think it needs a new gaskit may be a valve might also be gone(just one) but gona have to replace all 8 of them,,, now if any one knows a good Insan ka bacha machenic for the job plz do tell me,,, i dont think the rings will neede replacement but if they do thats the max it could go wrong,,,,, the problem is our dasi machenics know only 1 formula for engine trouble,,, open it and replace everything ,,,,
hmm... im not an engine expert too,but i cant think of any other reason of this but the one u stated! and if thats the case, yes, fixing a honda city's engine after opening is NOT as easy task and any average mechanic wont be able to bring it to back to 100% so yes, replacing it is the best option (unless u know a veryy veryyy good mechanic) im not from lahore so cant help about mechanic.
A friend's friend changed the engine of his car few months ago.engine costed 23k (it was L13a, not L12a) and 6k labour.so far the car is running good.
