Throttle Body and Air-Intake Cleaner by CRC is specifically designed for use on the Throttle Body.
This cleaner should not be confused with carburetor cleaner. If you need to clean your throttle body than the purchase should pay for itself with the regain in engine performance and additional miles per gallon. This product effectively dissolves the accumulated harmful and performance robbing deposits. This is designed for the basic surface cleanup.
Some usage and clean up tips are to place an absorbent towel under the area being cleaned to capture the removed gunk, and cover any painted, plastic, or delicate surfaces from over spray. This product is not paint friendly.

Inhalation hazard so use in a well ventilated area.

    I have a 2001 acura cl and have an aftermarket cold air intake. Is it safe to use and do I just spray it on or do I have to rinse it off after usage?

  • Q:

    On a 2008 pontiac grand prix, 3.8, do i need to take the throttle off to clean it?
    Asked on 1/19/2017 by Jane from GEORGIA

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      No, Jane! With engine off, remove air intake duct to expose the throttle body. It may be necessary to remove the MAF Sensor. Place a rag under the throttle body to collect runoff. Attach straw to spray button. Manually move butterfly valve back and forth while spraying-do not spray continuously. Be sure to clean throttle linkages as this product will leave a lubricating residue. Reassemble MAF, air intake duct and filter.

  • Q:

    can you use crc throttle body cleaner on a 2007 chevy Aveo LS. that has a throttle sensor?
    Asked on 8/17/2013 by Terry from myrtle Beach

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Yes, this CRC Throttle Body and Air Intake Cleaner - part# 05078 should work fine on your 2007 Chevy Aveo LS. It is not recommended to be used when the vehicle is running. Spraying it only really does not help much at all. Physical scrubbing and rubbing with the solvent is what it takes. Just stuff an old sock or rag at the bottom of the intake manifold to absorb all the solvent and scum.
