throttle body cleaning and top end de-carbonization
 
so another item the dealer wanted to sell me while the 2007 Outlook XR AWD with 57k miles was in for service was a throttle body cleaning and top end decarbonization for $220-$250. I thought that was strange since I had just had a throttle body and emission system cleaning done for $200 at another dealer at 50k miles. so I mentioned this and they said well maybe its because it was running rich while the check engine light was on for the timing chain and/or o2 sensor. Really? 7k miles and maybe 100 miles of running rich would require a the throttle body to be cleaned? why do I doubt this? they also told me my 3 month old wipers needed to be replaced for $45 - don't think so.

I'm not sure how "throttle body and top-end decarbonization" differs from the other dealer's "throttle body and emmision system cleaning" but I'm getting the feeling there is no difference. If there really is something that needs to be done beyond what I've done already, I'd appreciate hearing about it.
