CRC Throttle Body Air Intake Cleaner

The throttle body in the air intake system controls the air that flows into the engine.  The amount of air depends on the position of the gas pedal.  If you press the pedal harder then the throttle plate opens wider to give the engine more air, resulting in more power and increased speed. 

Eventually, dirt, carbon and other debris buildup inside the throttle body on the throttle plate and butterfly valve, reducing airflow and causing parts to stick.  When this happens, you may experience noise at higher engine speeds, fluctuating idle or stalling, rough or slow acceleration, and higher emissions.  Throttle Body and Air Intake Cleaner from CRC Industries effectively cleans and removes power robbing gums from air intake components on fuel-injected vehicles.

With the engine off, remove the air intake duct to expose the throttle body.  It may be necessary to remove the mass air flow sensor.  Place a rag under the throttle body to collect run off.   Spray CRC Throttle Body and Air Intake Cleaner in 3 to 5 short bursts, not continuously, manually moving the butterfly valve back and forth as you spray.

Many vehicles have electronic throttle control and use drive-by-wire technology to connect the throttle to the pedal.  However, if your vehicle has a throttle cable or linkage, be sure to clean that as well.  Brush parts inside and out with a toothbrush then re-spray and wipe down.

If you removed the mass air flow sensor, you may want to take this opportunity to clean it with CRC Mass Air Flow Sensor Cleaner.  Reassemble the mass air flow sensor, air intake duct and filter.

With CRC Throttle Body & Air Intake Cleaner, you’ll experience easier starting, and smoother, more efficient engine performance.
