Q: Throttlebody cleaning time? Opinions please.
My car runs fine. But if I'm going up a long continuous slope with either the cruise control on, or just my foot on the accelerator pedal running a nice smooth pace, my engine does this kind of (very mild) "surge-coast-surge-coast-surge-coast" type of running, rather than just "smooth running" like it used to.
I want to stress that it isn't a massive surge, it'* very weak, like if you were just gently tapping the accellerator a bit extra, on and off and on and off.
I am suspecting either:
(1) Time to clean the throttle body
(2) Plug wires
