RAM 1500 Throttle body clean
When does my RAM 1500 need a throttle body clean?
The throttle body can be found in RAM 1500 engine bays, it’s part of the air intake system on fuel-injected models. Air from the outside of the RAM 1500 is directed via tubes and flows through the air filter, into the throttle body, where it is then drawn into the intake manifold.
The air is then mixed with fuel and ignited, creating the combustion required to power a RAM 1500.
