    throttle body CLEAN

    just cleaned my throttle body today for my 6gen accord

    You will need:
    -Screw driver
    -1 can of Sea Foam
    -a Can
    -a baseter tube or funnle tube
    -a straw (from a sports bottle)


    This is the engine bay

    Your throttle body is connected to your intake

    you want to remove it by using your screw driver, then you will stick the straw into the throttle body plate inside


    It should look like that with the intake removed



    you can stick the tube in to the TB

    It should look something like this, you can pour the Seafoam into the funnel slowly 1/3 of the can your engine should choke and cut off you'll also see smoke coming out of ur exhast, once you finish pouring the SF into the intake let your car set for 5mins then start your car and go for a ride WOT.

    start your engine and step on the gas a little

    POOF a shit load of smoke will come out

    Time for you to get in to your car and go WOT around the block maybe even a trip on the freeway.

    Do this a couple of times

    the trottle plate is INSIDE the throttle body you have to use your finger and push the straw in, its difficult to take a picture of it. Looks just like a carbator but sideways.

    Hmmm that kinda helps. Oh well I just don't know how do you get that place in the first place. Do you have to remove the intake or what?

    great idea with the straw, for some reason i didnt think of that, and just used a turkey baster to inject it in, while pulling a little on the throttle cable, spilled a lot of shit all down in my engine compartment, hope it doesnt hurt anything

    I did my friends 94 accord and when I place the straw into the TB plate it rev the engine to high so what we did was inject the sea foam then start the engine (so the liquid would be sucked into the TB) did that 8 times, then let it sit for 5-6mins. Took a spin on the freeway WOT. could be done both ways

    *** just dont pour it liquid all at once into the TB or you'll hydo lock your engine ***
    take your time

    You F'd up your MAP Sensor.
    Some Carb/TB cleaner will mess it up. Is your CEL (check engine light) on?

    i know this is an old post but since its already back form the dead:

    why is this thread called "How to clean your throttle body"? this method doesn't clean your throttle body. cleaning your throttle body would involve removing it, and disasembling the plate and everything to clean out any build up that might cause a sticky tb plate etc

    this method cleans the intake manifold and combustion chamber.

    merry xmas everyone

    Why wouldn't you?? The sea foam burns off the carbon build up and such improving your cars ability to breath and burn the fuel better.

    Samson, an idle problem is usually caused by a dirty or bad IACV.

    How long does it take to get rid of all the smoke from the exhaust?

    Do you keep the car on when you are pouring in the seafoam?

    Throttle body..

    I just cleaned my car's throttle body using Deep Creep.
    I noticed that the engine oil is a little (blacker) darker.
    Do i need to change engine oil?
