Throttle body

can I clean the throttle body on my 2006 Chrysler 300 myself??If so how is it done?

Aquire an aersol can of throttle body cleaner. Don’t use anything else because some throttle bodies have a protective coating inside that can be damaged/removed from other cleaners.

Remove the air duct from the air filter box to the throttle body. Open the throttle plate on the throttle body by hand. Now spray the throttle body with the cleaner for five seconds, and then wait thirty seconds before spraying again. Continue this until all the deposits are cleaned from the throttle plate/throttle body. For really stubborn deposits an old tooth brush works great at removing those.


Park the car so spray runs out of throttlebody not in, put a rag under to catch it
