  1. cleaning the throttlebody?

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I know I need to clean the throttlebody on my car to hopefully fix the rough idle it has been experiancing. Once I remove the MAF how do I go about opening the throttlebody valve to get up inside it and clean it out. Is it ok to clean it while it is still on the car or do I need to completely...

  4. FAST intake dyno results

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods

  6. 93 Seville Throttle body cleaning

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    My 93 Seville has a 4.9 pushrod engine. Not Northstar.

They are just below the butterflys...

  8. throttle body.

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
