there are manual and automatic trasmission type throttle bodys. It usually has to do with the addition of and extra plate on the throttle spring where the throttle cable attaches. An automatic throttle body has 2 plates, one for the throttle cable, and the other for the kick down cable that is linked to the transmission.

Auto throttle body will work on manual.......Manual will not work on auto.
