Hi,some people take it apart and wash with a brake cleaner and then use comprest air to make shore the jets are free from being blocked.(If you do use a clouth to dry it make shore its lint free)
I myself just use petrol and a toothbrush as the petrol just evaperates to leave it nice and dry.
hope this was some help.

2006 sts engine codes p0174 and p1101


try taking some throttle plate cleaner and while the car is cold spray it around behind the throttle body. on a lot of Cadillac's their is a rubber boot between the throttle body and the upper intake and it splits and can give you a lean condition. it is air unacounted by the mass air flow sensor. or if you have a fuel filter. may be clogged.

Hello: It sounds like you have carbon build up in the throttle body. Get a can of good carburettor cleaner, remove the rubber hose from the air cleaner box and from the Throttle body. Hold the throttle plate open, spray carb cleaner on a rag, wipe off black carbon from both sides of plate and clean the bore of the throttle body, do not spray the cleaner into the throttle body cause if you get too much you could hydro lock the engine and destroy it. After you clean it turn key on (engine off) for 10 seconds turn ignition off, do this a TOTAL OF THREE TIMES.
