NEW GOSS THROTTLE BODY
To suit Holden Commodore and Holden Captiva
Goss has released a new throttle body suitable for the Holden Commodore VE / WM series 3.6L V6 LY7, LE0, LW2 engines and the Holden Captiva 3.2L LU1 engine.
Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) technology electronically connects the accelerator pedal to the throttle body, replacing a mechanical linkage.
A typical ETC system consists of three major components: an accelerator pedal module (with two or more independent sensors); an electronic throttle body that can be opened and closed by an electric motor; and an engine control module (PCM or ECM).
The ECM is a type of electronic control unit that employs software to determine the required throttle position by calculations from data measured by other sensors, including the accelerator pedal position sensors, engine speed sensor, vehicle speed sensor, and cruise control switches.
The electric motor is then used to open the throttle valve to the desired angle via a closed-loop control algorithm within the ECM.
The electronic throttle body assembly basically maintains the correct volume of air flow into the engine.
Goss explains that original units frequently require replacing due to electronic sensor failure, excessive wear and tear, physical damage and can also be seasonal (colder months).
Goss says it has spent many hours of R&D to determine the causes of failure and produce a quality aftermarket alternative replacement product.
Common faults can include the engine misfiring; throttle ‘chatters’ but with no fault codes logged; ‘ESP off’ light activated and warning appearing in dash cluster; fault code P0101 ‘Air mass meter range/performance fault;’ and fault code P2176 ‘throttle control lower position not learned.’
Since this part is essential to the operation of your vehicle’s engine, quality tests on this part include on-vehicle and bench testing to ensure this part conforms to product standards for durability and a longer service life.
Goss says benefits of its new throttle body (part number TB236) include:
• Upgraded replacement – this electronic throttle body features enhanced internal components to prevent future failures.
• It is 100 percent new, not remanufactured, for reliability and the added convenience of no core charge.
• Fitment gaskets included.
