  2. Fix 2003-2006 Element Cruise Control For Under $44

    Maintenance and Service
    You can FINALLY buy the parts to repair the throttle body and fix the cruise control on your 2003-2006 Element. The part kit, Dorman 977-100, is available on EBay for $38 or Amazon for a few more bucks. You will also need to replace the throttle body gasket which is also available on Ebay...
  3. Harsh shift from 2 to 1, not downshifting on freeway and stuck in park

    Problems & Issues
    I've cleaned the throttle body throughout and that helped the high idle. I am wondering though if all of these issues are because I need to replace the throttle body? I've seen people with the same problems but never got around to explaining if or how they fixed this.

    Maintenance and Service
    I bought a salvage Honda Element that was in a front end accident and I want to use this thread to show my rebuild project. I rented a Uhaul and trailer to tow the car to my house. The dipstick showed plenty of oil, but when trying to start the car it was completely dead, nothing. So on the...

    Problems & Issues
    I feel like I am taking crazy pills. Several months ago I was having rough idle and idle hunting problems. I read here to clean/replace the IAC valve. Since my E is drive-by-wire (and the IACV is integrated) I replaced the entire TB with a new Honda OEM TB and gasket. It solved the idle...

    I am on holiday in Austria and it was freezing here. I few day's ago the motor malfunction light came on (and couldn't shift out of Park normally on my A/T). The Honda dealer here tested the car with the computer and it gave a TP sensor malfunction. The car is running with no problem, is not...
  7. Throttle Body - help me understand

    Problems & Issues
    I was in an accident last week and GEICO offered a garage where they also staffed somebody, so the whole claim could be taken care of (supposedly) more easily. I hit somebody else, from behind, so the impact was to my front end. It was bad enough that there was about $1800+ worth of work...

    Problems & Issues
    Hi. I'm new to this club. Just bought my E about three months ago. Really love it, but I'm having some issues. I've read some threads on here, and done a lot of what is suggested.
