    QuestionThrottle body cleaning question

    Me again (98 STS). I'm not a tech so excuse my stupid question, but I assume that the toothbrush method involves removing the MAF, and if so, will I need a gasket or can I reuse the old one?

    Thanks.

    I can't recall if there is a gasket there or not but if there is you should be able to use the old one. Even if the gasket was damaged and had a small leak it would not make much difference in that position.
