      Comments about Valvoline Heavy Duty Carb & Throttle Body Cleaner (13 oz.):

      My Suburban would not idle properly and stalled out. The removed throttle body air valve was covered with emission deposits and excessive grime. I sprayed and wiped the inside of the throttle body per directions on can. With time I completely cleaned the throttle body inside and out, and reinstalled. Engine is running fine now. Great product.

      The can releases the spray with enough pressure to assist in removing unwanted debris from any part. It cuts through nearly everything.

        Best Uses

        • Motorcycle Carburetors

        Comments about Valvoline Heavy Duty Carb & Throttle Body Cleaner (13 oz.):

        Worked well for cleaning Motorcycle Carburetors that have set for a while. I had removed the gas line from the gas tank and sprayed into the line using the straw, I then started the engine revving it from time to time. I would continue to spray cleaner into the fuel line when it was needed. The throttle response began to improve and it began to idle without stalling. I reinstalled the gas tank and let the engine run to clear out any remaining Carb cleaner. This procedure restored the smooth idle and eliminated the hesitation it had without taking the carburetors apart.

          Will this product cause damage to the air duct since it is plastic/rubber?

            A:

            Yes, Joe! I'd recommend you to disconnect the air duct from the throttle body while the engine off. Then, spray the throttle plate and inside throttle body with Valvoline Heavy Duty Carb & Throttle Body Cleaner - Part No. 602333. Open throttle plate and clean sealing area. Wipe dry with a soft cloth. Reattach air duct. For large open areas, simply hold can upright 4-6 inches from part to be cleaned and spray.

            This just cleans throttle bodies. It does not leave a protective coating.

            Answered on 5/12/2010 by Kevin from AAP
          • A:

            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.
