E-throttle on an Mitsubishi

Postby stang » June 9th, 2008, 4:32 pm

Having throttle problems (idle jumping from 650-3000 like someone was pumping the accelerator), took down the throttle body and found that the magnets had come loose.

I'm trying to find out what's the best substance to stick the magnets as the "adhesive" that the company used didn't adhere to the magnets (it was clean) and was only on the shaft.

Already bought a liquid epoxy that can withstand 250 F and for metal but want to know if there is anything else i could use....

Anyone did this or has a throttle body for a 4g94 for sale?

Interesting.... never heard of that problem, but hey... u can be the 1st to try it out. Just make sure u don't rush the drying time and make sure u've applied enough pressure to them while they set

common problem with e-throttle systems, (not just mitsu e-throttles)

check mitsu forum

also, if the idle jumping, check your TPS, it may be gone

PM me if you need a new throttle, I may have a link for you

loctite 331 or 334 is what you should be using not epoxy!

Rainman...thanks for the advise...a little to late..used an epoxy from peake's that rated at 2500 psi and 100c heat...but think that the loctite 334 might be better...

just make sure you et the poles right an that you dont put to much of the adheive that the magnets rub on the inside of the housing, and the fluction in rpm is a direct esult of the magnets out of place.....
