English term or phrase: butterfly valve
I need to translate these terms into Swedish. They are all related to car engines:

butterfly valve
timing chain
intake manifold
runner (as "intake runner")
Michal Kucera
fjärilsventil, spjällventil, trottelventil
Explanation:
In a car application where you are dealing with an intake situation, the best word should be "spjällventil" (approx. 'throttle valve', but of the intake type. Throttle is used in the carburettor sense)
