The throttle body controls the amount of air the engine takes in, and when it gets dirty, the engine can’t operate smoothly. The throttle body cleaner cleans unwanted contaminants and deposits from internal components of the throttle body.
Carbon and sludge deposits build up in various parts of the engine, including the throttle. This carbon and contaminants can reduce the efficiency of your engine as well as increasing emissions. You will be able to tell if the throttle needs servicing by how well the vehicle idles and how well it starts from cold. A dirty throttle unit will make it harder to start, and affect the overall running of the engine.
It is advisable to carry out a throttle cleaning services every 40,000 km. While it’s not something that you need to think about every year, it is worth talking to your service team about a throttle body cleaner service at these points.
