Hello, I need to clean the grime from a throttle body from a 95 Silverado 5.7 that is off of the engine and want to be careful not to push debri into vac ports.I will plug off external ports but not sure what else to do.
thanks jim

There's really not much to them. Pull the IAC out, TPS off, some. Some throttle body cleaner and a brass bristle brush. The brass brush is softer than a steel one.
