As part of an air intake system the throttle body plays an important role in a fuel injected engine. The amount of air flowing into the engine is regulated by the throttle body. It is one of the main components of the air intake system controlling the amount of air that flows into an engine's combustion chamber. It has a bored housing that contains a throttle plate that rotates on a shaft. The throttle plate opens and allows air into the engine only when the accelerator is pushed down. When the gas pedal is released, the throttle plate closes and effectively stops the air flow into the combustion chamber. By controlling the air flow into an engine the throttle body works to regulate the speed of a vehicle.
