Hi!

I need to clean the throttle body and IAC motor of my '97 Sable Duratec. Living in Mexico makes it hard to get throttle body cleaner, but I can get Gunk carb cleaner. Is this acceptable? The TB has a label warning not to use carb cleaner, but I have read posts elsewhere where they mention there is no difference.

I've heard many people recommend using carb cleaner, so I think it's OK, but I'm no expert so I'll let somebody more knowledgeable say for sure.

Cleaning? Maybe we should ask n2_space... the resident neat freak.. though if you ask him, he'll probably tell you 1 part woolite, 3 parts water .... like everything else.


I heard people using gum out carb cleaner with success. If it were me, I'd actually get TB cleaner though.

With what mike said, You might want to look for TB cleaner on ebay or something then... just a suggestion since you said it's hard to find.
