May 2020: Throttle body cleaning (Again)

2020-04-30 16-43-08.jpg


Continued from where we left > Throttle sticking and temporarily cleaned with Rust Off

Managed to source Magsol Throttle Plate & Intake Cleaner through @varunkumar2910 from the garage he manages. It was hard sourcing from elsewhere as traveling was restricted and Amazon and Flipkart were not delivering at that time. Costs ₹ 300.00.

The hose to be removed. Secured at both sides with hose clips. Throttle body side is hard to access with limited space.

Wiped clean. There was very minimal or negligible dirt.

Putting this back in that place was next to impossible in that space without any special tool.

Installed the clip first.

Applied a bit oil, very minimal, just a film, wiped off excess before install.

2020-05-01 09-28-43.jpg


Pushed it in. Voila.

2020-05-01 09-32-45.jpg


Gave a wash.

The car looks beautiful now. Have you done complete repainting? if so how much expenditure for the total body color?
Would you please advise me result of throttle body cleaning (both before and after). I have never done TB cleaning so for and would like to try for my Fiesta 1.6.
