Had this problem with 01 tahoe...cleaned the Throttle Body..worked like charm. Wondering, though, how often this should be done to prevent problem from reoccuring.

Engine running rough - - sounded as if it was going to stall out. Took to dealership and they cleaned the throttle body.
It dies or says engine power reduced then dies on me. What do I do?!??
on my Tahoe 03 throttle body is dirty do you have to take it off and spray it with carburetor fluid to make it run right.
