    Default Throttle body cleaner(s)?

    So I know the difference between the cleaner for the Mass Air Flow sensor (to not use anything else on it).

    But the other end at the throttle body, do you have to be as careful? I mean could I potentially use Techron concentrate and a lint free cloth to clean the throttle body?

    I only use throttle body cleaner. You don't want to use something that will remove the coating inside the throttle body

    Throttle-body cleaning is good preventative maintenance, it should also help engine drivability. Use throttle body cleanser like CRC & soft brush and rubber gloves which is coating safe.Its effort to make driving reliable.
