Hey guys just taking the the bellmouth out of my car and wanted noticed that the throttle body was really dirty. I just wanted to know if I can use normal degreaser to clean it or if I need throttle body cleaner.

Cheers

Do a search, cause we have covered this before. Basically Nulon throttle and carby cleaner is made for that exact purpose, and works best. There is a full on how-to guide that shows exactly how to do the job.

thanks boys nd girls I just used degreaser and it worked a treat. I would never use that stuff they say to run trough your engine because the amount of carbon that was in the thing was unbelievable. I also took the bellmouth out and the bottom end is a lot better.
