Default Throttle body cleaning

hey folks,

its 60k miles, I need sparks plugs and wires, and a throttle body cleaning.

I know how to do the sparks and wires but am looking for recommendations...bang for the buck stuff.

Also looking to find out HOW to clean a throttle body. I have no clue. Any links, guides, help would be thankful!

The best wires/plugs for these cars are NGKs, if you can't find them or what not then go with AC Delco


Personally I prefer to take off the throttle body (TB) to clean it. You'll have to pull off the plastic duct (correct terminology someone?) and then disconnect the throttle position sensor (TPS) and idle air control valve (IAC) electrical connectors from the back of the TB. From there 2 10mm screws need to be unscrewed and shazam! I'd recommend getting a new gasket, they are about $1-2 at Autozone and worth it if the old one rips/peels anywhere when you take the TB off.

For a general idea of where the TB is check this diagram out:

It is the metal component #4 and #5 are connected to

Hope this helps
