I picked up some TB cleaner/lubricant from my local autoparts shop and figured I'd give the TB a quick spray. Figured it'd never been touched before by anyone.
Anyways... instructions on the spray can:
1. With engine off, remove boot at TB
2. Start engine
3. With engine running, spray cleaner into TB
4. Let engine run until it idles smoothly
5. Drive immediately
After performing step 1, I found that the engine wouldn't stay alive with the TB boot off. So, instead, I sprayed TB cleaner into the TB against a closed throttle plate and put the boot back on and started the car. Car started up an bit rough but settled down quickly and idled smoothly. Went for a quick drive right afterwards.
Has anyone attempted a TB clean? If so, how'd you do it?
