Cleaning throttle body with wurth brake and parts cleaner?

Is it safe to use WURTH brake and PARTS cleaner and a toothbrush to clean out my throttle body?

I do not recommend any brake cleaner. Brake cleaner isnt meant to be used inside the engine, There is a throttle body cleaner out there, u could also use maf sensor cleaner,

I've used both throttle body and brake cleaner both seem to work fine. Keep in mind the car will run rough and puff white smoke out the exhaust if you don't remove the throttle body. This is perfectly normal. Once you start it keep giving it gas and eventually it will wake up and drive even better than before!

throttle body cleaner ftw going to clean one I just picked up from the junkyard with that stuff too. Go nuts with a rag!

Brake cleaner is good for almost anything just wouldn't use it around the engine.

I use brake clean to get the oil off the engine all the time. Also have used it to clean the inside of the TB - but with it off the car of course.


Carb cleaner will work as well, but brake cleaner with a rag will do the trick just fine if that's all you're working with.
