Not always, thats true. But I have seen otherwise on a few occasions.
Get a little too agressive and its possible to mess em up. I would still
recommend having a set ready just in case.
Individuall results may vary.

You may be waiting quite a while for a response from Bill. He doesn't frequent our forums much at all anymore. He's a very knowledgeable person and I for one, miss him around here but he's moved on. If you see that he's in other forums, it would be best to query him in those places.ThaJuggla817 wrote:Bill Putney wrote: ...

Hey, Bill, I was wanting to bounce something off you since I see your knowledge across multiple forums and your wisdom is great. But I was considering going to the yard and finding a secondary throttle body, cleaning it up nice and pretty and using that one and alternate between the two as needed in terms of maintenance and cleaning. The second thing that I was wondering is what exactly would I need to clean up the IAC without causing it any damage. I noticed that those are hefty in price for replacement. I was figuring a stiff tooth brush and whatever cleaner, but that's why I'm asking first before I pursue it.
I've heard of using ATF to help getting engines unstuck. Also it has very high detergent content so I have heard to add it to engine oil before a change to flush the systemInfernoLime wrote:^^thats a pretty aggressive treatment! Glad it worked! I've never heard of putting ATF in the crankcase before? Where did you hear that?
