The throttle body on the Protege is also heated by coolant to prevent freezing in cold weather.

I went out and looked, it looks easy enough to bypass. I went out and got a connector to bypass, just to test it out. A friend of mine with a ford probe says it wont do much, but anything that has the chance of improving my baby!

I'll keep you posted on how it works out... if anyone cars.

I did it today, it seems to have made the car idle higher, I dont think the coolant would effect the idle, but anyway For how inexpensive it is if it helps at all I'll go for it.
