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).

My 93 camry start in it run i have new plugs starks plugs n cap and roller but when im driving in be at a stop light it sound like it want to cut off so i have to put it n netural in it the gas stop it...


sounds like its not getting enough of fuel. check or replace fuel filter. this will cause vehicle to die out at stops because when you come to a stop. the dirt settles to bottom of filter, and then its like it chokes out the fuel supply. Hope this helps! the reason it runs in netural, is because the engine is not under load.

It is NOT a failed Throttle Body

FORGET the 2100 ford codes

The problem is bad cop ignition coils

Change the spark plugs
Change any failed coils or all of them
Change the Front Oxygen Sensors at 100,000 miles
Clean MAF Sensor

Clean throttle body --- CRC- throttle body cleaner-instructions
on back of can

In a very very very rare case the TACM Motor may fail
on the throttle body & you have one of the also rare vehicles
that you can actually buy a new motor for, without getting a
$600 throttle body
Those motors Dorman has & Amazon I believe for $75.00

NO reason at all that YOU can not do ALL that work yourself

Part are avail from Rock Auto.Com

remove and clean idle air control valve. do not put whole valve in any liquid. just clean valve on end, do not push on valve end, or it will mess up idle setting. then clean around throttle plate in throttle body. there may be carbon around plate and its sticking, or no fully closing. this may help the idling. have a good day !! are the plugs and wires ok!! fix idle control valve first to see if that fixes it.

When i press accelerator engine is cutting ....


The van may just need a good tune up.

  • Replace the fuel filter
  • Replace the air filter
  • Replace the PVC valve
  • Replace Engine oil and filter
  • Replace the Spark plugs
  • Clean out the Throttle body with throttle body cleaner
  • Clean out the MAF sensor
This should help you get your van running 100% soon. If your on a tight budget, start with Cleaning the throttle body with spraying throttle body cleaner into the throttle body and cleaning up the MAF sensor with MAF sensor cleaner, just follow the instruction on the can. Then replace the PVC valve and add fuel injector cleaner in to the gas tank. This should help your engine running better and then you can do the rest of the work to complete the tune up. Good luck and keep me posted. If you go to Auto Zone, you can get all the things you need and they can scan your van for any DTC codes that may also indicate what issues your engine has.

Can I clean my Maf sensor and throttle body myself on a 2000 pontiac grand prix GTP? What are the steps? Is it necessary on 94,000 miles.


Yes it will help car run better. Take off any hose that goes to card so that you can see down throttle bore. Start car. Grab throttle linkage and figure out how to move it so that you can make the engine go faster. Begine to spray inside throttle body using little red hose that came with carb cleaner. While you are spraying the engine will try to cut out move the throttle linkage to speed up the engine so it won't cut out. Keep spraying all around inside and outside throttle bore.
