Na, a mechanic put it in with the tool...but they were extremely tight. We cetch arse to break them out the day after to check the timing. And I always stick it in the tool and then screw them in.

While you had the throttle body out, did you service the Idle Control Valve? Its attached to the bottom of the TB.

If you mean EGR valve (picture below), mine is actualli next to the throttle body and very easy to unbolt, and I did that the day before.

Well I replace the plug and the jumping and hesitation finally stopped! But I still think I could idle a little smoother. Where I getting plug wires and cost? Tell me the brand also, so I could check in my area before I head places like couva and chaguanas

but if you never changed plug wires it cant hurt

Gave you the man number right here...

The EGR and IACV are different components. The IACV is on the TB itself.

Hey, I am new to this site but googleing my exact same problem you are having I found this. I have a mazda lantis with a z5 engine and have the exact same problem after engine swap. Cooling fan not turning on. Replaced Coolant Temp Sensor, Coolant Temp Sending Unit Sensor, Spark Plugs and Spark Plug wires, NO CHANGE. If I unplug the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor, fans kick on in high gear and car drives sweet. With it unplugged, car idles rough, hesitate on acceleration. What I also came to reaalzie is that the temp gauge is not reaching half way point and only a bit before half even when engine is full heated which I realize is when the ecu will turn the fan on. ANY UPDATE BY YOU Stile HD.
