ELTA Throttle Bodies
The ELTA Throttle Bodies range consists of 50 part numbers that cover over 1,300 applications for in excess of 3,650,000 vehicles on the road. All are covered by a 3-5 year ‘no-quibble’ (excluding labour) warranty for complete peace of mind.
What are Throttle Bodies?
The Throttle Body is a critical component in the air intake system. Usually attached to the Air Mass Meter, it incorporates a butterfly valve that opens and closes, allowing air into the engine in response to the accelerator pedal being pressed.
The new range includes both electronic and mechanical Throttle Bodies, all designed and manufactured to ELTA's exacting quality standards. A Mechanical Throttle Body is cable operated and built using premium grade materials to ensure a smooth, consistent operation. An Electronic or ‘drive-by-wire’ Throttle Body is controlled using electronic motors and sensors that communicate with the ECU. The ECU then controls the operation of the valve. Again, premium quality materials and meticulous testing procedures ensure the reliability and performance levels expected from ELTA Automotive.
