Clean Throttle Body Service

What is cleaning the throttle body all about?

In order to run efficiently and smoothly, your vehicle needs a fuel mixture that is a perfect combination of air and gas. The air intake system is responsible for providing the air part of this equation. The throttle body is the component of the air intake system that determines exactly how much air to let combine with the fuel. When the throttle body is dirty it’s unable to let the right amount of air into the engine.

Keep in mind:

  • The air intake ducts should be examined when the throttle body is cleaned.
  • When the throttle body is cleaned, the entire air intake system should be inspected.

How it's done:

  • Take the snorkle off the throttle body
  • Spray brake cleaner on the throttle plate
  • Scrub plate with a brush
  • Spray the brake cleaner again
  • Reconnect snorkle

Our recommendation:

Your entire air intake system should be thoroughly examined during routine maintenance and servicing. Consult your owner's manual to see how frequently your throttle body should be cleaned.

What is a common symptom indicating you need to clean the throttle body?

  • Racing noise from the engine

How important is this service?

The air intake system draws air from outside of the vehicle, and blends it with the gas to create the optimal fuel mixture for your vehicle. The throttle body is the part of this system responsible for controlling exactly how much air is added to the gas. When the throttle body gets dirty, it is unable to allow the optimum amount of air into the air intake system, and the air-gas equation will be incorrect. As a result, your engine will not run smoothly.

Got a lot fixed. Miguel showed me all the small details like burned spark plugs that my dealership wouldn't point out or fix until too late. Thanks again Miguel.
Volvo S40 - Clean Throttle Body - Paramus, New Jersey
Miguel has been very helpful during my pre-inspection and while performing the follow-up maintenance. Being my first car, I was super nervous, but he explained everything he was doing and showed me why exactly my car would need those repairs.

Chris was super nice! I thought one thing was wrong, but it was something else & he handled it appropriately! Very professional, very knowledgeable, will definitely be using him again!
Dodge Avenger - Clean Throttle Body - Land O' Lakes, Florida
Christopher was great. Very knowledgeable, changed my alternator in the time set and helped with a couple of other things he spotted needing done. No hard sell to have more work, just sound advice. I was very impressed by the overall service and price wasn't too bad either. Highly recommend. Thank Christopher
