Comment 3
My car has 17000 miles and during an oil change, the dealer service dept. suggested I have a cleaning done for this area (part) for 69.99. Said it prevents future expensive problems. I got the sense they were looking for service business at my expense that is unnecessary. -
Comment 4
these throttle plates cannot be cleaned as they will take off protective coatings that prevent them from sticking. no need to service the throttle body at this time. Roy -
