I'd like to get step to step instructions on how to clean the throttle body in my 2010 Jeep Patriot


  1. Purchase "02 Sensor Safe" throttle body cleaner spray;
  2. Drive the vehicle a few miles, bringing it to full operating temperature, then park it in your driveway with the engine still running;
  3. Gain access to the throttle body, and hold your thumb on the butterfly linkage so that you can open the throttle butterfly when the engine begins to load;
  4. Begin by spraying throttle body cleaner spray on all linkages around the throttle body. If the engine begins to bog because it is aspirating throttle body cleaner, quickly open the throttle butterfly to keep the engine running.
  5. Once you have cleaned all around the throttle body, spray cleaner DIRECTLY INTO THE THROTTLE BODY, opening the throttle sufficiently to keep the engine running. It will run rough during this process but try not to let the engine stall.
  6. If the engine stalls, restart it, and continue cleaning the throttle throat until you see clean metal.
  7. Pour some fuel system cleaner into the gas tank and drive the car a little more before parking it. Try to find an excuse to accelerate hard, WIDE OPEN THROTTLE momentarily if safely possible (as when accelerating to merge into traffic on a highway).
  8. Drive back home.
  9. Done.

1998 Durango will not idle


Check A.I.S./I.A.C. motor on throttle body. Known by both names, Automatic idle speed motor (AIS) Idle Air control (IAC) . Usually mounted on side of throttle body, with 2 or 3 torx screws and it's job is to adjust idle at all times as necessary, such as when AC on, turning, etc when extra load on engine, it will increase idle as needed to overcome the load and maintain proper idle speed. You can often remove the motor and clean pintle (pointed end that goes inside throttle body) with throttle body spray cleaner as well as spray inside the port (hole) that it comes out of. Sometimes this will cure the problem for quite a while, but if only for a short time, and it happens again, replace it.

How do you clean EFI ON A 4.3 V6 ON MY 1989 C-1500 2 WHEEL DRIVE


remove the air duct hose that goe's to the throttle body, then you can see the throttle body area, you can purchase throttle body spray cleaner from a auto part store, start vehichle up and let run, and while holding down on throttle so engine won't die, gradually spray the cleaner into the throttle body area, and continue to let engine run untill smooth, so that the cleaner that was sprayed has time to burn the excess off of the o 2 senors, if engine light comes on after this, shut off engine, and disconnect 1 of the battery cables for about 1 minute, then reconnect the cable, and start engine up, light should be out, but later , i would hook up a code tester to the aldl under the instrument panel on drivers side to make sure code # from the light being on was removed, hope that this information was helpful to you.

Wont start


1st-Check Fuel(disconnect intake hose and spray carb cleaner or light fluid in the throttle body). reconnect and try starting. Check and listen to make sure the pump is priming itself when the key is switched on.
2nd-Check Fire(spark). Make sure that spark is getting to the plugs
3rd-Check Air(compression)

Durango starts sometimes. then acts like its getting no gas and dies. if i stomp on gas it will keep running till i let off. bad gas ? fuel filter ? fuel pump?


I would suggest starting with the less expensive solutions first. If you pull the air intake hose off the throttle body and open the throttle with the engine off look down inside if it is black try spraying it out with throttle body cleaner make sure to spray it out good. Afterwards start it you may have to keep your foot on the gas for a few minutes to make sure it doesn't stall then take your foot off the gas pedal and see if it stays running if it does your throttle body just needed cleaned. Note do not use carb cleaner use throttle body cleaner only, carb cleaner can damage the sensor in your throttle body.

Engin stops sometimes when I slow down, usely starts back up and run fine. Now I am at home it starts then stops, now it turns over but will not start and run.


it has a dirty throttle body. get some carb cleaner and a tooth brush.remove air cleaner hose at the throttle body. block open throttle to wide open {engine off of course} or have someone hold it to the floor.spray cleaner into body and scub with tooth brush especially were the throttle plat touches the bore when at idle and the throttle plate itself.spray brush,spray,brush. put hose back on and start engine. you might have to give it some gas to atart it then its going to run rough for a few seconds but it will clear up.slowly lower foot from gas pedal and allow to idle.put in reverse let run in reverse for a few seconda do the same with drive.it has now began to learn what position the stepper motor should be in when throttle is not depressed.it may stumble a couple of times at sops but will soon correct itself

simpler that exposing the throttle body just depress the accelerator 3/4 and try to start.

If like before, the vehicle starts... watch the rear view mirror for black smoke

both indicates a leaking injector(s)
