Re: Throttle Body Cleaning
I simply spray the sides where the butterfly moves, I then manually move the plate back and forth while spraying...... to make sure crud gets removed. . (done at every oil change).
I make sure keys are OUT of ignition.
Ive done this on
2003 Trailblazer- 180,000 ****
2010 Traverse- 125,000
2013 Equinox- 60,000
have never unmounted them. from the vehicles. Just keep the moving parts clean.
By the way-- I believe I bought my can of cleaner sometime in 2012---
Have cleaned the cars TB many times--- and im just running out...
Great $5 investment. I recently used it on the Equinox's last oil change 500 miles ago.
*** the Trailblazer is where I learned to keep it clean. It gave me some issues 1 time with a battery disconnect- vehicle would shut off on slow speed maneuvers. The computer could not learn proper metrics with a dirty throttle body.
I simply sprayed it- moved the plate several times- used a rag to clean the immediate are around the plate- and its been good ever since.
