Default help help help 2000 sc2

just an attention grabberf... im on my way to get a throttlebody gasket and hope ti have answers by the time i get back.
i have a sc2 dohc and im wanting to know or atlaest find a vid on how to remove the throttle body. its not by the egr valve as we all know..


are there any vids to show how to remove it on a 2000 sc2?

when replacing it is there some type of gasket seal i should put on with the gasket?

is it just the 2 bolts holding it on?

should i use anti seize lube on bolts when im putting it back on.

is it safe to clean electrical connectors with electrical cleaner from auto parts store for engine electrical?

egr valve change is it safe to use electrical cleaner on connectors and anti seize for the bolst as well?

Here's a video on how to remove the throttle body cable.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZ5cAVjjnWg

Removing the Throttle Body is 2 (10MM) bolts. One on the top left and one on the bottom right.

Throttle Body is located at the back of the engine on the driver's side. The Air Snorkle is connected to it.

Just a flat Throttle Body Gasket is all you need. It will probably be $4-$5.

No need to use anti-seize on the bolts.

You can use the electrical spray cleaner if you need to on the electrical connectors.

The gen-3 DOHC does NOT use a flat gasket. It's an "o-ring" type gasket. MOST parts store databases have the SOHC and DOHC listings reversed for gen-3. And it's in the middle of the intake manifold, not on the left side.

But since it's an o-ring style gasket, there's a good chance it can be re-used when you replace it.

To remove the carbon deposits in the manifold, you can use something like Seafoam or Seafoam Deep Creep.
