Default Re: Throttle always sticks a bit DOHC

In the real world, nothing is ill advised when you have to do things not recommended to make things work. There's the book and reality.

All the men and women in NASA's space program including every subcontractor never anticipated when Apollo 13 blew up its liquid oxygen tank while performing a routine stirring operation to gauge levels. A simple routine with internal tank wiring burned years earlier and going unannounced without a clue to danger occurred at the worst time possible. NASA and engineers worked day and night to create a way to bring home three astronauts leaving for the moon and returning in one piece. The phrase "failure is not an option" befits a crisis no one can anticipate.

Your adjustment to crack open throttle a little more is probably well within the adjustment margin for the pcm to accommodate it by automatically readjusting the iacv. While not discussed much, the pcm in my opinion has the ability to adjust for wear and tear like the groove worn into the throttle bore.

As long as idle and overall engine running hasn't changed drastically, you may not have to buy a replacement throttle body.
