2006 Laredo 4.7 PCV Valve Change & Throttle Body Cleanup

Are any of these 2 easy to do for someone who knows very little on mechanics? Dealer-Garage wants 0.8hrs labor on either. Also, is the IAC Valve cleaned at the same time as the throttle body is cleaned?

Please let me know, and if you have easy instructions pass them on, thanks!

PS> Hmmm here http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_maintenance.htm it says:

THE THROTTLE BODY ***CANNOT BE CLEANED,*** DO NOT USE SPRAY CLEANERS OR APPLY SILICONE LUBRICANTS TO ANY PART OF THE THROTTLE BODY. These types of products can damage the throttle body components. The throttle body has no serviceable components and is replaced as an assembly.

And for the PCV it says every 30 months so than I'm good, did it last year and a half ago..

I would think that's for the DBW throttle body from o8 to 11 as its a fully electronic one. yours being a o6, you should be able to clean it and replace the iac. yours is a cable operated one and has very little electronics in it.

I say you can clean it as long as you pull it off and wipe it out if needed. generally the 3.7 will not dirty up the tb. now intake manifold is a different story, when the pcv goes, expect to find oil in it.

unless its gunked up, I really wouldn't worry bout it
