Default TB removel and cleaning

Am I able to take off my throttle body with some handtools? If so, what should I use to clean it?

Yes, you can do it very easily with hand tools. 3 bolts to unbolt it from the intake. I think they're 10 MM. Pick up a fresh gasket because they're not really reusable.

For cleaning, remove all the sensors first. Then, I like to fill up a coffee can with gas. Put the throttle body right in the coffee can of gas and let it soak. Use a soft bristle brush to clean off every crevis. Rinse with water. Let dry. Reinstall.

If you're like some of us, and can't get your sensors out, just get some sensor safe intake cleaner, or brake cleaner or something.

Just be safe, go to autozone and get a can of STP throttle body and intake cleaner... You won't be sorry... That stuff is strong enough to clean the crapp out of the throttle body and is plate coating safe... Good stuff
