  1. Spark Plugs & Throttle Body really dirty! 80k miles

    2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    I bought my 2012 Mustang last March it runs and idles great. Recently I removed factory throttle body and cleaned it with TB cleaner. It looked pretty dirty to me! I changed the spark plugs too, and they seemed really bad too! There was quite a bit of oil residue on the intake manifold too, you...
  2. Weird result to IAC/Throttle Body cleaning

    4.6L Tech
    My 1999 Mustang GT had been idling rough, but when I turned the A/C on the idle would be smooth. So I figured I will clean the IAC and I might as well clean the throttle body at the same time. Went out, bought some throttle body cleaner and did the easy job after watching a couple of...
  3. 2011 Mustang GT advice

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    Hey everyone, A few months ago I purchased a 2011 GT. The first mods I installed were an off-road h-pipe, mufflers, and a Bama 93 tune. The next bolt-ons I am considering are an intake manifold, cool air intake, and throttle body. I have read around these forums a little bit and see a lot of...

  6. Cleaning Throttle body and MAF

    5.0L Tech
    My 06 V6 automatic idles oddly. when I shift into park the RPMs drop to 4-500 and it shakes real quick and almost stalls out, but then goes right back up to the normal 650. I have been told to try cleaning the throttle body and/or MAF sensor and I am wondering if that's what I need to do, and...
  7. 2006 Mustang GT Throttle Body

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    My car is in the repair shop and they want to replace the throttle body. Do I really need to change this? They want $700. I've searched the fourm and couldn't find anything similar to problems I am having. The car will not hold an idle after I replaced the battery. It idles when it's cold, but...
  8. Clean Throttle Body equals Performance Improvement

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    A week ago I changed my alternator. When I removed my throttle body, I noticed it had carbon buildup behind the butterflies. I paid the dealership last year to do my 100,000 mile maintenance, which included the cleaning the throttle body. It appears the stealership didn't do the job. So after a...

  11. Cleaning Throttle Body 2007 GT

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    It takes less than 15 minutes and makes a world of difference. This is at 61,000 miles; my 2006 GT was more than twice as bad at 100k. I just use carburetor/throttle body cleaner and sacrifice an old soft bristle tooth brush. It helps with throttle response and taking out hesitation in the...

    So here is video and sound located near rear exhaust. Bama 87s,89P,91R BBK 73mm TB + BBK Chrome shorty headers.
