Re: 97 Taurus Vulcan-clean throttle body?
You have two options on how to clean the throttle body. The lazy mans way is to spray cleaner at the dirty spots with the engine running (you may need a second body to give it some throttle so the engine doesn't stall out). The proper way would be to remove it and wash it with solvent, let it dry or dry it yourself then reinstall. If you remove it you can clean it twice as good since you can get the crap off the inner side which you can't get at if you leave it connected and just spray GUNK cleaner or another can of cleaner in there. I wouldn't worry much about the coating. It's unlikely it'll come off, if it does it'll go into the intake of the engine. If that was the case Ford would have issued a recall years ago!
