I was told by my Ford Service Department that my Intake and Throttle Body needs cleaning...How can I do that?


Disconnect the accelerator cable from the throttle body as well as the electrical connectors for the throttle position sensor and the idle speed control solenoid then disconnect the plastic air intake duct, remove the four bolts securing the throttle body assembly to the intake manifold and remove it.
Clean it out using an old toothbrush and a can of throttlebody and air intake cleaner , then reinstall it by reversing the steps above.

I would start with checking the IAC ( Idle Air Control ) on the back of the throttle body. This provides air to the throttle body when the butterfly is closed ( idle ). Some times they build up gunk in there, and the valve cannot work correctly.

The IAC is on the back of the throttle body, you will need to remove the plastic throttle body cover to get to it.

There are 2; 8 mm ( 9 ? ) bolts holding this on to the throttel body, remove the bolts, and unplug the connector and the tube. Spray the IAC with throttle body cleaner that is MAFS ( Mass AirFlow Sensor ) safe a few times until the clear runs clean. Let dry and reinstall. Might need to be repalced, but worth checking on cleaning 1st.
