My wife’s Malibu (2006 2.2L) intermittently dies when coming to a stop. My mechanic says it’s the throttle body but he says to replace it, not clean it. I’ve seen advice on both sides of the fence, yes, clean it and NO, don’t try and clean it. Is there a definitive answer on this? Is the throttle body on this year and size engine a DBW?
Also, the mechanic said to add injector cleaner into the fuel tank when filling up. If it is the throttle body, how is this going to help?
I’d like to get this resolved without spending a small fortune. Thanks.
