coolant does run through your throttle body, but you said its visible? It shouldn't be.

Sounds like your MAF is dead. Find a new or used one.

I think you have a couple issues that you need to deal with. If you ruined the MAF then yeah it won't start. Mine won't start at all with the MAF unplugged. That is how the engine knows when to add fuel with increased air. If you have coolant in the TB then I think you have a bigger problem than the MAF right now.

UIM failure will cause coolant in the TB. Better check your oil ASAP. If it doesn't look right (coolant mixing in) you have a very serious problem on your hands. If this is true, you should drain your oil ASAP before it costs you your entire motor.

The only other route of entry for coolant in the TB is a leak at the TB gasket, which isn't as common as the EGR passage erosion in the UIM. Both can cost you a motor.

My goof. It would help enormously to have some information other than how big the wheels are in his signature.

In that case, he needs to replace his TB gasket. He'* exposing DEX to air, and that is giong to cause acidic coolant if it hasn't already.

Beast, did you take off your TB when you cleaned it?

No, or not at first, but later? Please be more specific, and PLEASE update your signature so everyone knows what engine and trim level you have. You have to help us so we can help you.
