So I cleaned my throttle body some time ago, but idling it still not great. I’ve read it’s possible the Electronic IAC could be dirty preventing the TB from moving smoothly, and it might be possible that when cleaning the TB, perhaps dirt got in where it wasn’t suppose to. Issue though is that the car has an electronic IAC that’s riveted to the TB. Just wondering if possible to remove the rivets to carefully open the IAC, inspect for dirt, or clean with a suitable cleaner, then rivet it back into place? Has anyone done this?
Someone has suggested that I just get some Subaru upper engine cleaner, remove the TB and spray into the IAC to help clean, would that also work as a cleaning solution ?
