    If there is a vacuum leak around the throttle shaft; the best thing to do is to either buy a remanufactured throttle body from a discount parts house like (www.rockauto.com) (they have a precision remanufactured Autoline #F1990 throttle body for your motor that sells for $284.79 plus a refundable $50.00 core deposit, which is returned when you ship them the old throttle body) or else buy a lower mileage used throttle body from an auto wrecking yard.


    Rock Auto also sells two throttle body repair kits for this vehicle, for either $21.99 (Airtex/Wells #2G1009) or for $25.89 (Airtex/Wells #2G1659). You'd have to phone Rock Auto's customer service number to find out the difference between those two kits. It may be that the more expensive kit comes with new throttle shaft bushings; which would be very important to install.
