no problem man. good luck w/the cleaning. i know i found alot of carbon deposits on mine when i cleaned it; also cleared some codes.

make sure u get the right TB cleaner. get the fuel injection cleaner, not carburator cleaner 'cuz i think it can hurt our engines and they're the more noticeable at auto parts stores. i used valvoline and it worked really good.

It will be alot easier if you have the throttle body off of the UIM, and even easier if you have it off of the car period. By doing that, youll be able to get to the back of it, which is the far dirtier side. A good brush and a can of carb cleaner and youll be set.

only problem to that would be if anything falls into the engine while cleaning or if the engine has high mileage and then you'd have to replace alot of gaskets, as i later had to do when i replaced my valve covers a few weeks after i did my TB.

but yea, taking off the UIM would be the best way to fully clean it.
