my throttle bodyspring broke , called ford and they dont have a part number or anything for it. called napa and they only have universal springs. whats up with that. anyone else run into this issue. maybe this means i need to upgrade to a 56mm throttle body??

sorry just needing to vent. :banghead

I wasnt saying it like that. just figured ford or the parts store would have a NEW part. plus the yards around here make you ask for stuff from behind a counter then if they do have it maybe you can go out there and take a look at it before its picked off. Personally i would rather walk around to see what they have, would spend more money there then. ya know

:twak The junkyards around here are like that also. They don't let you roam the yard and then charger you for the cost of a new part. :twak

I got a spare spring in the garage, thier not supposed to be replaceable but you can with boneyard parts. Ford wants you to buy a new throttle body everytime it gets dirty instead of useing cleaner. They say cleaning it will remove the teflon coating thats supposed to keep it from getting dirty in the first place????????? I put a 56mm TB on last year that I picked up on ebay cheap. t was still the biggest waste of cash I've got on my truck. No real difference in performance. But it was cheaper than a new TB...Fog

Ok, looked it up in my books.

Electronic fuel injection secondary throttle return spring, E5TZ-9A538-A

This may or may not be the correct one as my books are for the 1988 model year and a lot of times the part numbers have been updated. Best way to tell is to take that part number and go to a local Ford parts desk and give it to them. They'll enter it in their computers and get the correct part number.

Nah I don't want to sell the TB, I needed a new TB when I bought it and it was cheaper than Ford, but It just did'nt do what was advertized. If you need the spring pm me an address and it's yours. Fog :beer

i bet if you put some headers on there it would compliment that throttlebody a bit more.
