The Nissan Micra, both K11 (1993-2003) and the K12 (2003-) models have very weak throttle bodies. It’s a very common fault and we are now taking orders for these on a daily basis. When the throttle body fails, most garages will take it off and clean it up with carburetor cleaner and commonly on other vehicles this will normally do the trick, however, unfortunately the Nissan Micra although showing similar faults to other vehicles with failed throttle bodies (also known as air mass meters).. the fault is electrical and will not be cured with a squirt of carburetor cleaner.
The unit will have to be professionally stripped & rebuilt or replaced.
Common symptoms of a failed throttle body on a Nissan Micra (both K11 & K12) are:
- Stalling at traffic lights
- Loss Of Power
- Erratic Idling
- Cutting out under Power
- Engine Management Light On
