That will work a little bit. The best thing to do is remove it. Then you can clean all the passages, crevaces, and the back side of everything.
With the engine turned off, of course.:laugh:Just pull off the air tube and activate the butterflies by hand while spraying. If you have a bottle brush, that'll work to clean deep inside.
I guess I should have stated that up front. :bigthumbsupWith the engine turned off, of course.:laugh:
The throttle body comes off with 4 bolts. Just remove them and disconnect the wiring harnesses on each side.Can anyone give me direction of where, and how to remove this.so that i may clean minds. also what to use to clean it. pictures will be better if possible
It's reusable. It's a silicone o-ring type gasket.Do you need to get a new gasket or is the old one reusable?
Unless it breaks like mine did.It's reusable. It's a silicone o-ring type gasket.
One of the big problems is the TB's proximity to the PCV inlet on the plenum. PCV blow-by has a tendency to work its way forward and into the TB.Just wanted to know why would you have to clean the t/b so soon.. Your car isnt that old to get that much build up in it? Is this a problem with all mustangs or what! I have an 07 GT and havent had any problems with it..
It can certainly affect idle and throttle response.Thanks for the info. I'll take a look at mine te see if it needs cleaning. Does it make the car run bad? Or does it send codes to the ecm?
+1. All the more reason to install an oil separator. After installing my Moroso setup on my N/A 2006GT, I found over a 7 week period, I had collected precisely 41ml (8 teaspoons) of oil for 1200 miles of driving. Although happy this was under the N/A S197 average of 1-2 tsp/100mi, I can't imagine this amount of oil going back into the intake to be burned (or deposited !)One of the big problems is the TB's proximity to the PCV inlet on the plenum. PCV blow-by has a tendency to work its way forward and into the TB.
You need a quick release tool to release the spring on the fuel rail. A business card will also do the trick.After installing the delete plates, I could not believe the amount of oil blow by that was caked on the butterfly valves. The whole intake manifold from the throttle body back is probably coated with this blow by. What would be the best way to remove the blow by? I'm thinking of removing the manifold and flushing it with degreaser. I could not get the fuel rails removed from the manifold. Is there any trick or is it fuel pressure on the o ring?
