Vehicle Speed Control

Summary
Vehicle description: Sport utility vehicles. The cast alloy throttle body is heated by fluid bled from the cooling system, to prevent icing in extremely cold weather conditions. This fluid passes through a small attachment (plate) to the throttle body, which utilizes a cork gasket. The cork gasket has proven to be unreliable in this application. Consequently, coolant fluid can leak from the interface between the de-icer plate and the throttle body.
Actions
Dealers will replace the throttle body gasket, de-icer attachment, and securing hardware.
