there is a fuse in the fuse box on the drivers side inside the truck...its called the room fuse it controls the injectors look to see if its bad is so change it this will fix the problem

the injectors are fired thru the engine cotrol module but it gets its signal to fire from the pick-up located inside the distributor if you are loosing injector pulse only the ignition module is bad if you are also loosing spark when you loose injector pulse your pick up is causing the problem if you replace the pick-up i recomend you change the ignition module when doing so because they work together and you have to remove the distributor to change the pick-up

have been spraying into throttle bodies for years, never had a problem messing up plugs. but if you are insistent, you can remove the throttle body from the intake and clean it outside of the car. note that you may need to replace throttle body gasket after removing it depending on how well it comes apart and how well it seals once put back together.
Here's one more idea if you're careful, though i don't think i recommend this. You could stuff a small clean shop rag just through the throttle flap so it's actually in the intake manifold (make sure you can get it back out when you're done) and then spray all through the throttle body. The rag should soak up any excess fluid and then pull it back out when you're done. The reason i don't recommend this is because you may get fibers or other unfiltered debris in the intake and then into the cylinders which could theoretically scratch your cylinder walls and compromise compression to a degree or cause you to burn oil (yeah i guess it's not likely but it has to be possible).

If it is a matter of flooding the engine with carb cleaner I'd be patient and let a day or two pass and allow the carb cleaner to evapoate off. Yes some will pass thru the rings in to the oil (change your oil soon w/filter)
Other then that I would not expect issues if this indeed the case. To help the process you may want to turn the engine with the gas pedal fully depressed; in doing so this justs off the fuel injection allowing the engine to breath a bit witout getting a spray of fuel. If the engine does start while doing this be certain to remove your foot from the gas pedal so not to over rev. the engine. Be aware even with starting fluid if the engine is trully flooded (with no mater what) she will not start.
I hope this may have helped,
