Throttle Body HELP!!!!

I cleaned my throttle body put last night with degreaser I think I made a mistake with that........now it sounds like the TB is sticking open cause it takes a little bit for the RPM's to drop. What do I need to do to fix this?

How long is "a little bit?" These cars have always held onto RPM far longer than a normal vehicle.

the car will throrw the following codes and go in to limp mode because of the butterfly valve sticking. P0507, P1516, P2101, P2119. I just about to order the SMS throttle body and just going to give them this one as a core unless there is another company that makes TB's for our cars?

Please don't do this if your current TB is bad, they take the cores and bore them to send to others. So if yours is bad that means someone else is going to get your problems. And with my luck it will be me.

If I get used to envying others those parts of myself that I am proud of will recede from me.

then he'll lose his deposit if he don't send it back...if they send it out defective, they'll have to replace it on their end...
Ron, why didn't you tell me it was doing it when i was there saturday?? i still have my stock one in the trunk, we could've swapped it to see if it stopped at all or something...i know the girls were hungry, but they could've waited a little longer (don't tell Holly i said that though, lol)...

You most likely have a vaccum leak cause you washed the grease out of the throttle shaft bushings.

would you not assume that onces they make these semi-refurbished parts they are fully gone through, and inspected/tested?
