I'm going through cleaning all connectors and sensors plus changing vacuum lines, coolant (including the ones on the throttle body) and fuel lines (under the hood). I have throttle body off of the intake and I was just going to clean it good and new gaskets at the intake. Throttle body hasn't ever been broken down and cleaned, but judging by all the black junk that rinsed out of old coolant lines and heavy carbon build up in the port on the bottom below MAF I'm considering buying a rebuild kit ($40 which is cheaper than the 2 intake gaskets from dealer) and tear it down and clean it good.
The rebuild kit comes with all the gaskets plus solenoid o-rings and even a punch to remove the injectors, but this is where I'm pondering just leaving the injectors alone or removing them and replacing o-rings/seals plus cleaning them.
Keep in mind that the Path wasn't running well before I started down this road and what I believe lead to the poor performance was a coolant line (I hope there is only one???) under the intake had started leaking and it ran hot, but I shut it down almost immediately and I was close to home. However, the coolant soaked the right side of engine including the throttle body (ex: TPS terminals and connector had a lot of corrosion build up when I checked them, so I'm guessing the coolant was able to get i there at some point) and the Path ran fine for a few weeks, but went into a steady decline and it's been parked for awhile.
Should I break this TB down and clean it good including replacing seals/o-rings for injectors?
Anyone had a bad experience with these rebuild kits? I'm looking at the one from "Rock Auto" https://www.rockauto...1211768&jsn=377
Thanks ahead for any feedback.
