 Caterpillar Forklift Throttle Body

The Caterpillar Forklift Throttle Body is a component of the air intake system. It helps to manage air flow and the fuel consumption of forklift trucks. Its prime objective is regulating the air and fuel mixtures for the engine.


The air entering the throttle body gets filtered and directed into the intake manifold. In there, the air gets mixed with fuel and forced into the engine cylinders for burning. The combustion of the mixture powers the engine.


Mass air flow sensors mounted over the throttle body monitor the volume and mass of air flow that is inserted into the engine. The sensor system offers volume information which is then regulated and the fuel and air mixture which is combusted in the cylinders is maintained in a balance.


There is another sensor in the throttle bodies which senses the positioning of valves, controls the air flow. It works in coherence along with the mass air flow sensors in order to adjust the fuel amount which is mixed. This sensor also checks the speed at which the fuel valves get opened and balances the fuel amount in the mixture so that the acceleration and the throttle response can be greatly improved.


Extensive use and age can wear the throttle body causing the forklift engine to malfunction. It should be maintained regularly. If an irreparable problem occurs, a replacement is needed immediately. Solid Lift Parts Inc. offers throttle body parts for all models of caterpillar forklifts. So, contact right away to get the right parts!
