The new range consists of 50 part numbers that cover over 2,000 applications and in excess of 5,000,000 vehicles on the road. All Throttle Bodies are covered by Lucas Electrical’s three-year ‘no-quibble’ (excluding labour) warranty for complete peace of mind.
The Throttle Body is a critical component in the air intake system. Usually attached to the Air Mass Meter, it incorporates a butterfly valve that opens and closes, allowing air into the engine in response to the accelerator pedal being pressed.The new range includes both electronic and mechanical Throttle Bodies, all designed and manufactured to Lucas Electrical’s exacting quality standards. Mechanical Throttle Bodies are cable operated and built using premium grade materials to ensure a smooth, consistent operation. Electronic or ‘drive-by-wire’ Throttle Bodies are controlled using electronic motors and sensors that communicate with the ECU. The ECU then controls the operation of the valve. Again, premium quality materials and meticulous testing procedures ensure the reliability and performance levels expected from the trusted Lucas brand.
