I've never used anything on the threads and tightened them to 89 in/lbs on the first pass

I always used Loctite Threadlocker.....believe it was part of a kit, with new studs/nuts/gasket, for problems with throttle body leak of coolant....

thanks for all the input

cleaned out the throttle with the CRC intake cleaner with all the sensors off.

however the IAC is dirty . wondering if it would be safe to clean it with the CRC intake cleaner?

the mafs had a little shred of material rolled around the sensor, happy got that off

Its okay to use cleaner on the pintle surface only. Do not get any inside the actuator.

No, the IAC is not a sensor. It'* a vacuum control valve. The PCM uses this to control the idle. Kinda like a automatic choke on a fuel injected car.
