Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky
throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this
video in response to it. There are many different configurations of
throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is
sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I
am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states
now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts
One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle
(DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this
procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in
order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this

Explains the Ignition Coil Operation. The ignition coil's job is to
increase the voltage from 12.6v to 8K to 45K volts. In essence it is an
auto transformer. Voltage is increased but current is decreased. All
ignition coils need a pulsating DC to function. Learn how it operates and
how to test. Further information can be found at our website and Feed-Blog.
