its the thing thats on top of the intake manifold. im not trying to be a jagg but it cant be said any easer then this.

04 and newer u might have to change the whole throttle body out unless u go to a dealer that will cost $400 to $600 throttle body is only $260 and its easy to change at least thats what i had to do with my 80 with a 4.8 liter

is on TB,throttle body,is a round black plastic with a tail with 1 plug ,2 tourx bolts,is eather in front or on right side looking at motor.
