    adivce on throttle body

    going to clean out my throttle body on the x18xe1 engine, bought some carb cleaner and was wondering do you remove the throttle body to clean it or can you do it with the throttle body on. also on the instructions on the cleaner its says to leave engine running and to spray the cleaner whilest dabbing the throttle is this correct.

    Best way is to get it off the car and clean it thoroughly form both sides- that way you won't push any carp down the inlet manifold
