  The idle/WOT switch has a common problem of breaking at the solder joint inside the switch.  If you are handy with a soldering iron and are familiar with electronics like me, then you can repair the break in the solder.  If not, then just replace the switch, they arent that expensive.  The fuel injector O-rings have a lifespan and once exceeded they can be deformed and not seal as well as the new ones would.  Again they are inexpensive, i think under a $1.00 each.  They are just a pain to put back in.

    I am just going over some of the recommendations what to check on the turbo for a 10v I5, and have some questions.

    Why does he recommend to replace the idle/WOT throttle switch, and fuel injector inserts/O-rings, and how much do they cost?
    Can't they just be checked if they are ok?
