1998 SL2

Default Throttle always sticks a bit DOHC

So ya, the throttle on my SL has always been a bit sticky off idle, esp in the colder weather. I have serviced it several times, usually by just removing the intake tube and scrubbing it out with a toothbrush and solvent, sometimes I remove the TB and thoroughly clean it.

It's usually fine for a bit, but lately it gets sticky again sooner and sooner without really getting that dirty inside. Is there some other adjustment I can make? Runs fine otherwise.

My 96 SL2 and 98 SL1 have joined together to become one. So I guess I now have a 1996/8
