throttle body cleaner?

Recommended Posts

It would probably cut the grease pretty well but it will leave a residue. You need something that dries without an oil film left behind. Brake cleaner works best.

Since I got a little paranoid I went ahead and washed it in soap and water really well.. Just sitting in the box now I wont install it until Monday or Tuesday.

Soap sometimes will leave a residue. I would rinse it off with some 99% rubbing alcohol or brake cleaner or something that evaporates and leaves no residue. You should probably be fine, but I always rinse everything that might be picky to residues off in alcohol to make sure there is no residue. Let us know how it goes!

brake cleaner does work best for sure. If you do use something else, ie- carb cleaner, soap'n'water...that's fine, but wipe it down with rubbing alcohol after to remove any residue. it's cheap, and works good
