Look at it this way, even if you want to sell it, you need to fix it. Today my throttle cable stuck on the truck. That woke me up.

Been having a problem with the idle on the truck ever since I bought it, on and off problems. I tested the TPS and everything I found looked good. So I decided I might need to clean the throttle body. I opened it up and this is what I found.

When I bought it I went to change the air filter, and found there to not be one. Bet that'* when it got in there.

Built a transmission today. Decided to make sure it was the right flex plate. Nope, the guy was shipped the wrong one. Trying to get the correct one here because I need the car out of the shop. Would have had it all done today.
