EDIT 12/02/2015: The video uses the pack 9010 and follows the instructions given saying to spray the product by the admission.

How to clean a throttle body and Idle air control valve (iac)
*** PLEASE READ *** In this video demonstration, I show how to get to, remove, clean, and replace the throttle body and idle air control motor (aka IAC) on a 4.2l ford motor. This procedure is the same for any fuel injected vehicle. * * * Check out my website krkvideos.com * * * The vans require removal of alot more stuff just to access the throttle body. A dirty IAC can cause a rough idle. A dirty throttle body can harm performance and cause rough engine operation. When the throttle body or iac is removed a new gasket must be used to properly seal the connection to the intake. GM idle air motors are generally mounted on the throttle body and can be cleaned without removal from the throttle body. This means one less gasket and a lesser chance of creating a vacuum leak. The ford throttle body had a note on it that said it was not to be cleaned because the coating on the throttle blade might be damaged. Thats fine for a new car but that has to be disregarded when working on something that has some miles on it. Subscribe to my channel. * * * Definitions: * * * MAF - Mass Air Flow sensor - Monitors the amount of air the engine is intaking. IAT - Intake Air Temperature - Measures the temperature of the air the engine is intaking. IAC - Idle air control - Controls the amount of air the engine is intaking while it is idling. Throttle body - Responsible for regulating flow of air into the engine as you press the gas pedal. TPS - Throttle position sensor - Tells the computer how far you are opening the blade in the throttle body so it can add more fuel to compensate the added air. * * * Visit krkvideos.com for more! * * * * * * Visit krkvideos.com for more! * * * * * * Visit krkvideos.com for more! * * *
P0401 EGR Valve Port Cleaning
This is my DIY for clearing the CEL code P0401 (EGR Insufficient Flow) on a 98 Honda Prelude. In cars with OBD2 if the EGR valve is restricted by carbon deposits it will detect that and throw a CEL. To get rid of that CEL you must clean out the carbon to allow flow. After combustion occurs within the engine it creates Exhaust. Gas from the Exhaust straight from the engine is very bad for the air. The EGR valve recaptures that Exhaust and runs it through the combustion process again, which lowers the temperature of the fumes (Exhaust gas) and lowers the amount of pollution exiting into the atmosphere. If you don't fix it you won't pass SMOG in California. You may experience rough idling and poor acceleration. Tips: Get your "EGR port plugs" from Honda. They will have it. Removing the injectors are important to allow clearance to the port plugs. When you pull out the injectors you might as well clean them since they are out. Slide hammers make pulling the port plugs out easily. Drill with a bit the size of your tap. Drilling halfway through the port plug to should be enough distance to fully grab the port with the slide hammer. If after you clean your ports and valve the CEL has not been cleared, you EGR valve maybe faulty and needs to be replaced.
