pull off air intake duct and clean with carb spray and open throttle plate and scrub inside as far as you can and get all the crap out of there.

It seems as if the takeoff on your ford 99 expedition has a slight delay what is the problem?

I had same problem with my 98. Mine was the throttle body area. What happens is the throttle body gets carboned up and makes the accellerator sticky and causes the hesitation... To fix: 1. remove the large rubber intake from throttle body. 2. start engine. 3. spray throttle body cleaner (large amount) inside butterfly area of throttle body as you rev the engine to keep it running. 4. done.

How do you fix a low idle problem on a ford explorer?

If you have a cable operated throttle body it's probably a bad idle control. Depending on your parts supplier they might call the idle control an IAC or ISC or IBP. If you replace the idle control, you should first clean the inside of the throttle body thoroughly using throttle plate cleaner and either a soft brush or a rag, then run the engine for a few minutes. If you have an electronically controlled throttle body, suspect a damaged throttle body or a broken wire near the connector at the throttle body.

Toyota Camry throttle does not return after depressing was told the throttle body needs replaced Could it be gummed up or a bad return spring Garage wants 1000 to fix?

I believe Toyota went to a an electronic/electric throttle design in 2002. There is no mechanical connection. A spring on the accelerator pedal returns it to the start position. There are products available at the parts stores for freeing up the throttle body. If you have a car with a mechanical hook up to the throttle body you can free the cable up with products available.

This may be due to 2 reasons. One is the fact that the throttle body bore has a groove worn into it due to a worn throttle shaft bearing. This cannot be fixed as you will have to purchase and replace the throttle body. The other could be a frayed or binding accelerator cable.
