Throttle Body Cleaning

Well everybody, this is my first How-To article. I know that plenty of you are aggravated, as i also was, with the idle surging issue that begins around 13k miles. Some kind fellows on here mentioned cleaning the throttle body, and briefly described the process. I took some "low quality" photos of w

The high hanging can be normal for a day after the cleaning it seems

I'm about to install a Typhoon this weekend. And while I'm at it...figured I would take the extra lil bit of time to clean my TB as well as the MAF . I bought the dedicated CRC cleaners for each type. But I have a question...car is an 06. And I have read many articles about NOT moving the butterfly valve on the TB while it's off the car or you will need a re-program of the PCM. It always states later model vehicles but never really gives any specific years. So is the 06 IRL late model enough?? Or will it be ok to take it off and move the flap inside ? I already know not to get any of the cleaner inside the SuperCharger...no worries there, just use a damp rag on the inlet only. But any clarification on the TB rule would be appreciated. Thanks!!

I never heard that before. Im pretty sure I moved mine the last two times I cleaned it with no problems afterward. Its spring loaded so it fully closes itself I find it odd that it would cause a problem but maybe I got lucky. Mine is an 07 btw.

I have an '04 and have cleaned the TB a couple of times. I always move the butterfly valve to clean and have never had an issue.

I was told by a tech once not to mess with it while its still plugged in and the key is in the acc/run position. I dont see how that could ever happen unless one just forgets to take the keys out of the ignition before removing it.

You should always take it off to clean it anyway.

Well obviously. The point he was making was not to remove it, or open or close the valve manually while the TB has power going to it. I dont know if you've ever noticed, but the TB valve opens slightly when you turn the key to acc/run.

I'm glad to see a post I wrote so long ago is still proving to be helpful! I never had issues about resetting anything. As was mentioned earlier, completely disconnect the TB from the car before cleaning. The valve is spring loaded, so it will return to a closed position.

Unplug your tb before doing this. If it has power to it and closes on your finger it will either bend the throttle plate or nearly remove your finger. Unplugging and cleaning (even moving the plate) will only serve to clean your tb. It will NOT mess anything up.
