 Caterpillar Forklift Throttle Body

Caterpillar Forklift Throttle Bodies

Caterpillar lift trucks with non-carbureted engines use throttle bodies to regulate how much air goes into their engines. If you have one of these Caterpillar forklift models, you probably already know that getting the right intake airflow can make the difference between good or poor driving performance. These simple air intake system pieces use an internal flat valve (butterfly valve) to regulate the amount of airflow, which opens more or less depending on how much we press against the gas pedal.

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.

Looking for Mechanical or Electrical Caterpillar Forklift Throttle Bodies?

The flat valve that is part of your Caterpillar forklift throttle body can be manipulated mechanically or electronically, depending on which type of throttle body it is. This may seem obvious, but knowing how the throttle body it's activated will make it much easier to find a new replacement. 

Remember that mechanically activated throttle bodies rely on a cable, while electronically activated throttle bodies receive a signal directly from the engine control module (ECM). Therefore, their shapes, sizes, and accessories will be completely different. 

When shopping for a new throttle body at Solid Lift Parts, ensure to take these factors into account in order to find the best possible match for your Caterpillar forklift. With the right throttle body in place, you can be sure that your engine will perform at its best.
