PleaselLook at the diagram in the link below. See that part 22202? It’s called out in the expoded diagram below/right. Right under the throttle spring? On my Ford truck, there’s a similar part and it is called a “dashpot” on the Truck. I presume that is what it is called on the Corolla too. But, since the Corolla has electronic fuel injection w/a IAC controlled by the ECM, I’m wondering why a dashpot is there on a early 90’s Corolla.
This gadget appears to be there for a reason, but I don’t understand what. It provides a stop for the throttle closing position. If it moved, it would raise or lower the rpm. But it doesn’t appear to be connected to any electrical wires. So the ECM couldn’t make it move. So does it in fact move? Just curious, what does it do and how does it work? Anybody ever had to replace one?
