What is the purpose of throttle rod bushings?

The purpose of throttle rod bushings is to reduce friction and vibration between the throttle rods and the throttle linkage. This allows the throttle rods to move more smoothly and efficiently.

How can I tell if my throttle rod bushings are faulty?

If your throttle rod bushings are faulty, you may notice a decrease in engine performance, as the throttle rods may not be able to move as freely. You may also hear a rattling or squeaking noise coming from the engine, as the bushings may be worn out and unable to minimize vibrations.

Can a faulty throttle rod bushing cause damage?

Yes, a faulty throttle rod bushing can cause damage to the throttle linkage, as it is unable to provide the cushion or vibration dampening necessary for the components to move freely.

How do I replace a throttle rod bushing?

Replacing a throttle rod bushing is a relatively simple process:

  1. Locate the existing bushing on the throttle linkage.
  2. Disconnect the throttle rod from the linkage.
  3. Remove the existing bushing from the linkage.
