throttle body heater issue

Post by Dino Man » Tue Nov 05, 2013 7:12 am

I have finally dug in to my spider 2000 to try to find out why am not getting a spark... When I took off my Air intake line, fluid came out!!! Down into the spark plug area. I had noticed some fluid sitting around my plugs but had thought it was oil seeping up from a bad seal, but I now guess it was radiator fluid from my throttle body heater. Does anyone have thoughts on a fix for the heater it seems like it is much corroded underneath so it must be weeping fluid? Thanks for any thoughts.
