2001 suzuki esteem 1.8 stalls- auto shop wants to replace throttle
Welcome! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to assist you with this problem.
did the shop say whats wrong with your old throttle body ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

not really--something about faliure codes--will know more when i go get the car

since this throttle body has an accelerator cable on it ( some newer ones do not )
i find it hard to believe it needs a complete throttle body to correct a stall
most is servicable on this throttle body like the TPS
i would bring the car to another shop and get a second opinion
this doesnt sound right
can you find out more and code numbers from them ?
