Primary Use

With the advent of fuel injection usage on virtually all new passenger cars and light duty trucks, the system designs have separated the air intake system from the fuel system. This requires separate servicing of the air intake system due to its unique and sensitive requirements, namely light dirt and varnishes. Contamination of the sensors and light duty linkages will cause engine malfunctions, including erratic idle, minor hesitation and stumbling, as well as startability problems.

Key Features

  • Cleans effectively and dries quickly.
  • 360-degree valving allows direct spray onto surfaces.
  • Provides excellent car maintenance and improves drivability.

Directions for Use

  • To access the air throttle valve and the idle air control valve, disconnect the air snorkel from the end of the air intake manifold and pull it aside.
  • Spray Throttle Body Cleaner directly onto the throttle linkages, throttle valve surfaces and into the intake manifold until clean.
  • Excess product may be absorbed with a shop towel.
  • Idle air control valves may require removal to facilitate cleaning.
  • The air intake system should be cleaned whenever it is serviced.
