Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
If you are talking about cleaning the throttle body, Ford does not recommend cleaning it with any type of brake cleaner or carb cleaner, as it can cause damage to the throttle body. This is true- DONT spray anything into the throttle body! If it is dirty enough to need a light cleaning, youll have to use a dry, clean, lint free rag with NO chemicals on it to lightly wipe down the inside of the throttle body. Remove the air duct that leads into the throttle body and then hold the throttle butterfly valve open manually with your hand. Use the cloth to wipe everything down, then reassemble. DO THIS WITH THE VEHICLE COLD AND OFF!!! This is just about the best way to clean the throttle body, just be extra careful not to damage anything as they are sensitive.
Thanks for asking!
