      Comments about Valvoline Carb and Throttle Body Cleaner:

      Dodge Dakota was running rough and sometimes died at stop lights. I purchased a can of Valvoline Carb/Throttle Body cleaner in hopes this would solve the problem.

      The spray tube was a great help in keeping the cleaner where I aimed it. I could see the deposits disolving as asson as the spray hit them.

      It did the trick, the truck rns great now.

              Cleaned out my idle control ports easily. I also used it to clean out my intake on a different vehicle. It does pretty well on "gunk".

                Does what it needs to do. Cleans the grim off the TB and other intake parts. Just don't spray it on the MAF. Use the MAF cleaner, as its safe to use on electronics. Nothing bad about it other than it best to be sprayed strait up. Upside down will have problems spraying and sideways is acceptable.

                This product seems to disolve carbon deposits better than most brands. Some of the "throttle body safe" seem to have a hard time dissolving carbon. Not this one, it works well.
                A great product for home or shop.

                          I think the question refers to some TB's having a protective coating from the manufacturer and whether this harms that coating. I'd go with the CRC brand as I have never had issues with their product (specifically TB cleaner) and my G35 coupe. Good stuff, just go easy on the amount used.
