Re: Help with throttle body

So what's the procedure for cleaning up the intake manifold? Can it be done reasonably without pulling the whole intake?

There is not one provided in the '08 WK FSM. I thought about it, but it's definitely a PITA.

If I were doing it, I would remove the intake manifold and all fittings (sensors, gauges connections, PCV Valve, etc.) so it is stripped clean. Then wash out in a SafetyKleen tank with a pressure stream until what flows out is not full of oily debris. Drain it and blow dry to get out all accumulation of fluid.

Reinstall with all new gaskets (MOPAR 5.7L HEMI intake manifold gasket kit).

Re: Help with throttle body

PITA is for sure to remove and install the intake mani. I was going to and decided it's not worth all the time, but there is no other way to clean it. You dont want to spray anything into it while it is installed, pushing the gunk into the cylinders.

Same logic, same end result for me.
