mech used it to clean TB
after some months, opened to check and found TB all black with soot
best is to dismantle and wipe clean.

after some months sure got soot one, it's due to the blow-by of the PCV system lah!

That's the reason you need to clean the TB after sometime

depends where the blow-by is connected, some is between TB and air fliter box, some is inside the air filter box and very close to the air filter with another sponge to catch the oil

As long as you don't soak the TB in a pail of Carb Cleaner can liao, just spray and wipe off the carbon/soot/oil deposit

most of the engine nowadays have blow-by from the PCV, this normally will blow off oil fumes from the cam cover during high load (rpm) and will get coated onto the TB.

of course, all the soot and dirt remove, flow is better. It'll be good if you enlarge the bore and smooth it out just like what I've done

my ride now still N.A. but have already done IHE liao, just added MSD CDI last week

have you read my thread http://www.mycarforu...2268673#2268673

Can we dun remove whole TB to clean? Just remove front portion and spray spray inside.

Of course all the dirt, oil,etc will go in but shd not be that harmful rite?

oh no better not!

the most dirty end is the side connected to the manifold. you spray solvent inside, all the dirt and grime will accumulate at the other end. this will be harmful.

best is to remove the whole thing. its pretty simple as long you take note of the dismantling procedure so you wun be a blur sotong when fixing it back.

Hehe. Ya but because once I went to a workshop, he quoted me 2 pricing to clean TB.

1. Remove whole TB, clean.
2. Remove front only and spray spray spray.

Hehe price difference half. And since mechanic can recommend so I think it's ok. laugh.gif
