You need a new gasket, especially considering the age of yours. Remove the TB, take the MAF sensor out of it, and scrub it with a toothbrush and a couple cans of intake safe cleaner. Spray the bejesus out of it. Dry thoroughly before reinstalling the MAF.

Just to clarify, scrub the TB, not the MAF.

Thanks, guys...I found another topic in this forum and it has a link to: http://www.geocities.com/rivierareso...ecleaning.html

In this link to mentioned the use of Sea Foam. I want you guys to check it out and let me know if this is okay and will not harm the engine. Let me know thanks.

that'* a link to my site. The sea foam did a great job at cleaning the carbon and deposits out of the vacuum system. It made a nice difference in throttle response. I did this around a week and a half ago and have had no effects other than a much better running engine.
