Hey guys, this might be a stupid question. I was cleaning my throttle body and I couldn't get the blades to open. I read the preventative maintenance thread it said to hold it open with a screwdriver. So how do you get the blades open? Thanks.

well move the throttle cable on the passenger side of engine that will open and close them can't find it still? have someone push accelerator in car and watch to see movement or just have them hold gas down so you can clean go get some MAF cleaner or carb and maf cleaner heres a tip try to park car facing down hill with nose end down so the cleaner doesnt go into engine have a rag and old tooth brush with you =) best of luck
