You have no "throttle body", you have an upper & lower intake manifold, (sometimes the upper is called the "plenum"). There is never a need to "prime" it. Your vehicle is MFI (manifold fuel injected) and "primes" itself when the crankshaft position sensor senses crankshaft movement, and a start signal from the ECM unit. Should it take too much cranking to start the motor, you could have a bleed-down (siphon) back to the fuel tank by a bad fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator. (The fuel pump relay provides a 2-second burst of power to the pump any time it senses a "start" position of the ignition key. Mark---Raleigh, NC MFI is actually multiport fuel injection, but a 96 acheiva has SFI or sequential fuel injection other than that the answer was correct, btw those 3100 are famous for bad fuel pressure regulators i would check that first, on the left side of the engine just behind the power steering is a test port, for the injection system, you should have at least 15 pounds of pressure at the test port...skandolis fort smith ar

How do you remove the speed governor on a 1994 E350 16ft box truck?

As far as I know the only road speed governor would be an aftermarker unit. It can be removed but you would have to know what you're doing. The ones I've seen take the thottle cable off the thottle body and run it to the aftermarket unit. Then a new cable from the unit back to the thottle body. I guess you could hook the original cable back to the thottle body and "by-pass" the unit. Rich

Why does my 2002 Pontiac grand prix gas pedal stick could it be the throttle body?

Yes it could be the throttle body and this was the case with mine. Mine would be stuck when the car was not used for a day or so but otherwise worked fine. The accelterator had to be pressed hard and when it broke free, there was more than desired acceleration. I found the thottle body to be gummed up pretty bad particulaly on the down stream side. I could not clean it well without removing the thottle body. Once I had it removed, cleaning was easy with some carb cleaner and a toothbrush. Cleaning the throttle body restored normal function.

The ECM has detected too little flow on the EGR system?

This is generally the explanation when you get a PO401 check engine code. It is ussually caused when the carbon builds up in the channel leading from the EGR through and into the thottle body. Most of the time it can be fixed by cleaning the passage with a good carb cleaner and a wire pipe cleaner restoring the flow of air through the passage. Sometimes you might have the replace any one of the EGR Value, EGR Solinoid or the EGR Pressure Sensor. These can be costly, so begin with the cleaner. You may have to remove the thottle body face plate to gain better access to the channel.
