    hey man is that ion a 2.4L??....

    I unbolted my TB like 4 months back put it down, cleaned it out and then bolted it back up and went to limp mode... took it to the shop and i had to pay them 340 dollars for a new TB cuz one of the MANY sensors was malfunctioning, the guy told me theyre very VERY sensitive.. i was like... wtf i hardly touched it... and he just shrugged lol...
