Re: Have you cleaned your throttle body lately?

See those cables attached to the tb in the pics above? One of them is directly connected to the accelerator pedal. It's an 01 WJ and they do not have the throttle by wire. If yours has no cable connected to it and instead has a little electric motor or two, then it is the dreaded throttle by wire.

exactly, it will be either a moving cable, or a wired plug. some of the later ones with a throttle cable will sometimes have a sensor in them so dont let a single wire confuse you.. just look for the steel throttle cable.
