Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome. Thank you for trusting us with your vehicle concerns, I will do my best to help you with your question.
This is what Dodge says about it,
CAUTION: Do not use spray (carb) cleaners on any part of the throttle body. Do not apply silicone lubricants to any part of the throttle body.
Do you know if there are any trouble codes? (that may point toward the TB)
No codes...last week the computer they hooked up at autozone said egr valve so I changed it (after the plugs,wires,air filter) and check engine light went off but when I got it up to about 60mph it jerked and I could hear that air/ticking kind of sound...thought I would try cleaning throttle body and pcv valve (can that be cleaned?)or replacing it...not sure what else it could be
If you do not require further assistance, kindly rate my service.
Ok I will try that but can you tell me how I clean the thrittle body since I already have it off and it looks pretty dirty...can I push open the flap or will that cause a problem? And should I use break cleaner?
1 last thing (promise)...I am checking the egr valve now...what would the spark knock be caused by? Could any of it be from plugs being over tighteded?
