Carlos i have this stupid question but I dont know so.. when a car idles(no throttle) is the throttle body open alittle bit to get air in. If it does than when you turn your car on and leave it at idle, will you be wasting fuel?

if the car is running your always using fuel dude

Even when your wheels are not spinning? at idle around 700RPM you are wasting fuel so the throttle body is opened a little?

as far as i know it takes 2 things to make and engine run...air and fuel

so i guess yes its open a little to alow those through

Just a correction . there are THREE(3)(tres) things that make an engine run, air, fuel, and NOS!!!

on some vehicles throttle plate might be completely closed but an iac motor or solenoid is allowing air through the throttle body, and no nos is not one of the essentials!

trivia for you carexpert! whats the third essential? fuel air and....... tick tock tick tock
