Two ways. Take the intake off the throttle body a little ways and rev the engine while you spray throttle body cleaner into the opening. You might also be able to take the IAT or vacuum line out of the intake and use that opening to spary the cleaner. Second would be to get hold of a can of SeaFoam from your local auto store and follow directions. It make quite a large cloud of smoke out the tail pipe so work in an open area.

Hi Ernie. You beat me to it while I was typing. Happy New year to ya and hope Santa was good to you and yours.

Spent Christmas in OK with daughter and family, leaving tomorrow morning going thru Dallas, not my favorite to drive thru, but it is better than thru Memphis where we were going. Should be home in a couple of days.
