It may be a good idea to have the throttle body and injectors cleaned at regular times but you do not have to have it done now unless you are having a problem with how the engine is running. If you have it done then you may keep some problems from happening like hesitations or hard starts. You may be able to wait till you have a tune up done to the car.
