By far the most common reason for failure is the actuator (throttle motor) itself, especially when it only seems to happen hot. If it happens cold, the switches for the system should be checked with actual values, and you may want to have this checked anyways. make sure a couple base gaskets are ordered as well, I don't believe they are included, and it helps to have an extra one, it's really tough to get this in right. Also the breather hose from the throttle motor to the valve cover should be replaced, they get really stiff from all the heat in there, really cooks them, and that makes it tougher to replace the throttle motor.
