Under certain conditions condensation in the intake air corrodes the needle bearing housing, thus, the sealing between intake air and the electrical actuator circuit of the throttle body might not be water-tight any more. If water enters in the throttle body actuator circuit, the water might cause a throttle body position misreading or short circuit inside the throttle body electrical actuation mechanism. This might trigger the engine to stall while driving.
