    I have a 08 4.0 V6, the dealer told me that I needed to clean my throttle body. I have look for the throttle body and still nothing. I do know what they look like and I am not trying to look stupid. So does anyone know where the location of the throttle body is? If you have picks or directions please let me know.

    its right on top of the intake manifold, under that stupid engine cover you guys have:p.

    You'll have to disconnect the "hose" going from the air cleaner to the throttle body, then it should be easy to clean from there with some cleaner and a clean rag.
