1) Couple of Clean Rags
3) Throttlebody cleaner (sometimes referred to as intake cleaner)
4) Ratchet with the appropriate heads
5) New throttlebody gasket.
6) An empty container to catch coolant
7) Some vacume line or other tubing to suck coolant.
A good phillips head screwdriver.
1) Flex-head sockets for your ratchet. As I leaarned at NEBF, this will save you much pain when getting the bolts out.
2) Pin head pliers for removing the MAF screen
1) Remove your radiator access cover (Its that cap right on top of the radator
2) Use your tubing and suck about half a gallon or so of coolant out of your system. (This is to avoid a mess later)
3) Remove your air intake from the throttle body.
4) Disconnect all cables from the MAF, TPS, and that other sensor (Name slips my mind atm)
5) Remove the 4 bolts and screw (Number and alignment might be different on your car)
6) Gently slide the throttle body away from the engine. Be prepared for some coolant to splash.
7) Set the throttle body aside and remove the TB gasket from the engine. Replace with a new gasket.
Very gently and remove the 3 sensors from the throttle body. You don't want that cleaner destroying a $30-100 sensor. (Note the alignment of the TPS arm for later)
9) Remove the MAF screen using the pin head pliers if you have it. Be very careful removing the screen as it is easily damaged. (NOTE: Some people have permanently removed thier MAF screen and have had great luck, while some haven't. I personally decided to leave mine in. Search the boards for more information on this and make your own choice there).
10) Whip out your toothbrush and rags and throttle body cleaner and go to town. The throttle body innards should have a machined finish after you're done.
11) If you decide to keep your MAF screen, reinstall it now.
12) Install the TPS. Be sure the TPS arm is aligned the same way it was when you removed it.
13) Install the MAF and the other sensor on the TB.
14) Reinstall the Throttle body back on the engine by using the alignment screw and reinstalling the bolts you removed earlier.
15) reattach your intake.
16) Plug your sensors back in. (Don't be an idjit like me and forget this part )
17) Load your coolant back into the system, making sure that the fill line is back where it belongs.
Have fun. (Much thanks to Bill and Randy, I learned this from them.)
