throttle body replacemet

Hi!
I have Ford Focus 2007 wagon SE 2L . Need to replace throttle body.
Current one does not return to "close" position. If I bring it to "close" position manually - everything is fine (idling, RPMs and so on). Internet and all part selleres say - TB are interchangable for 2L engines. Got TB from 3 different cars on junk-yard (all 2L models 2003-2006). No idling with all of them.
Should I do smth with "new" installed TBs (some hidden bolts)? Or it is not possible to use TB from another car even with the same engine?
Thank you

they should interchange...
with it pulled out and disconnected does it close properly on its own??? try using your own TPS on one of the new throttle bodies and make sure the gaskets are good they do go bad with age.

the one is currently installed - it does NOT close properly on its own. As a result - high RPMs .. that's the reason I wanna change it. I've tried to move my TPS to "new" ones, didn't help. The "new" ones (they are from junk-yard as I mentioned) are closed properly .. no space when closed and moves smoothly. the only problem, no idling.. I thought, may be we have a bolt somewhere to adjust idle RPMs manually..

the computer should be what controls the idle, the set screw is mainly used to set the butterfly level and is usually locked into place.

can you get the part number of the throttle body that came out of the car and the 3 replacement..

have you tried pulling the neg of the battery and letting it sit so the ECU goes into re-learn mode (currently the car has the settings stored on how the car usually runs) by resetting the ECU it sets the car into a default (relearn) mode where it will relearn the systems to make the engine run optimal again.

I can tell part number for my current TB and the last one from junk-yard but after my back home. So, I'll send them tonight around 8 p.m. Mountain time.
I always remove neg when I replace TBs. It takes around 5-8 minutes, so - yes, about 8 minutes there were no battery there. Not sure if it is enough to reset ECU

ECU's usually reset after about 30 seconds to 1 minute but people say 5-10min because of possible sources of residual power.

i want to pull up the actual parts to see them to verify they are for the engine.. its more of a lets look more indepth because ive never seen an engine react like that because of a matched throttle body, i have replaced quite a few of my own and mixed years and haven't had issues.. granted it was not a Duratec they were Zetecs. so i would like to just look indepth for you to see if there is any differences and possibilities why... i can understand 1 not wanting to work but 3 of them something sounds off..

No. not all 2.0l 2003-2007 fit

need to make sure it is a duratec engine first.
2.3 from 2003-2004, and 2.0/2.3 2005-2007 should fit your T/B

Did you use a new gaskets? if not you could be having sealing issues

No, I didn't use new gaskets.. in my understanding if gasket not good - more air in throttle, higher RPM's... but in my case no RPM's while idling.. no RPM's at all...immediately stops.. but I'll try to get new gaskets and let you know what happens
to be honest the way how it works - I don't think it is gasket problem.. I might be wrong of course

this is why I'm asking for the part numbers.

and i have a 2003 durectec throttlebody on my 2006 2.0 SAP after i found mine cracked and it runs perfectly fine.. (someone had patched the crack but I'm anal about thing so i replaced it even tho it worked fine)

adding a gasket wont hurt its not enough of a gap to produce any difference.

thing is you mentioned pulling off your old trying your new ones they didnt work and putting on your old one and it works like before so i personally dont think its gasket related
