Some customers may comment on a higher than expected accelerator pedal effort from the idle position.
Condition may be caused by a tight throttle blade in the throttle body bore when in the closed position.
DO NOT adjust the shipping air screw to rotate the throttle body blade away from the throttle body bore. Adjusting the shipping air screw compromises the idle speed control, and may lead to other driveability concerns. Adjusting the shipping air screw may lead to reduced Idle Air Control valve durability.
Verify the cause for this condition is not a damaged or binding throttle cable. FIGURE Figure 1 - Throttle Body Date Code Identification(c)
