    and the dealer should be able to adjust it upon request as well, I don't know why they would say it's unrepairable that sounds like a total copout

    Doubelieve, I have been advised, and it has been repeated in this forum, that trying to move the throttle plate by hand in a drive-by-wire system will damage the motor. This is a 2015.

    I suppose it could happen if you bent it or was rough with beyond the norm, I have done mine multiple multiple times on 3 different vehicles (all drive by wire) and never had a problem as many others have. let me ask you this, what the heck do you think the mechanic does when he does it and gets paid handsomely for it????

    Our '12 started idling rough and it was the injectors. Ran two tanks of Techron with no change, ran two tanks of Sea Foam with no change. Then ran two tanks of Amsoil P.I. (Performance Enhancer) and it not only smoothed out but the mileage improved. Made a believer out of me for Amsoil P.I. It's about $10 a bottle.
