Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this video in response to it. There are many different configurations of throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts store. One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle (DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this procedure if you're trying to correct a problem with a sticking throttle. If you have idle problems, I recommend you check out this article on my website.

355Nation - 2005 Chevy Colorado Throttle Body Cleaning
This is the before and after of the throttle body on my 2005 Chevy Colorado 3.5l. It was never cleaned with 149,800 miles, and this is the difference. It idles way better, more performance. I cleaned it with a $5 can of throttle body cleaner, and a microfiber cloth, it took me 15 minutes to do. The only performance mod is a K&N intake.
