Just installed my CAI, and decided to clean the throttle body while I was in there. Pulled the IAC to clean it. Used brake cleaner with a toothbrush. There was some corrosion on the tip that would not come off. I don't think a Scotch Brite would have been any more effective. Would emery cloth hurt it, or should I just think about replacing it? BTW, noticed that the belly pan gasket is leaking, so I'll be getting into it again soon.

does Seafoam or Mopar Cleaner address this issue ? i'm always hesitant to take things apart when they are working smoothly.....really wish i had done this when installing my CAI.

If you were completely insane and hated your ram you could try this.
Call me crazy ,but I don't think "shrapnel" should be the main ingredient of anything you put in your engine.
