Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I put a throttle body on my V70 from a XC70 and
it's idling high I looked online and they sell throttle
bodies for V70 and XC70 turbo so I didn't think
there's a difference what do I do

remove the negative battery cable for a 10 minutes, that should default your settings.

also check that all your vacuum lines are hooked up and you didn't disturb anything

So because 1 throttle bodies from a turbo and the other ones not a turbo it shouldn't matter?
