I have a 97 duratec and the spray didn't ignite while spraying it, and the car still ran with MAF and IAT disconnected.Originally posted by sundarpn@Feb 2 2004, 08:29 PM
When I spray in busts into the intake, is there a risk of FIRE
What about gen 3, will the negine run with the connectors on the intake tube disconnected. (one is mAF, dunno what the other is)
This is how I do it, too. I take off the air intake tube so that the throttle body is exposed and I shoot short bursts into the TB while revving the engine a little bit.Originally posted by mikehawk@Feb 2 2004, 06:39 PM
I used a can on (I think) Gumout intake cleaner. The instructions are on the bottle. IIRC, you just take off everything up to the throttle body, start the car, and if it will run without the MAF then you spray for 10 second bursts into the throttle body and while you're spraying you manually open and close it. It's pretty easy, and you get to rev up your car for a few minutes until the can is empty. **Make sure you don't let the little red straw that attaches to the can get sucked into the throttle body.**
Or, you can remove the whole intake and scrub it out with brushes and carb cleaner(or something similar)
The second method is more meticulous and you can visually make sure that you've cleaned the every sqaure inch of it.
The first method gets it clean, too, but I doubt it will get it as clean as taking everything apart. However, when I did it, I opened the TB and looked in with a flashlight and it was clean as far as I could see.
