Default Mopar Throttle Body Cleaner

Does anyone know if I can use the Mopar TB cleaner on my 2009 hemi? The instructions on the can say to spray in the TB with the engine running, but it seems like taking it off the engine would be better. I've read a few places that you should use break cleaner to prevent damage to the electronics or the coating on the TB.

Any advice would be appreciated.

well i ran throttle body cleaner figured if i destroyed my throttle body i could justify buying a ported one and not get an ear full from the lady of the house. cleaned it all out and ran fine no problems.

You can use the Mopar TB cleaner on your engine. RamTech (still sad he's not been around) did a write-up on how to clean throttle bodies and he recommended using brake cleaner since it evaporates quickly and doesn't leave a residue. If you're going to spray it down the intake, leave the plastic hose off the nozzle so it doesn't get ingested into the intake.

I cleaned mine with brake cleaner and put a catch can on. No more nasty throttle plate. Good luck and let us know how it turned out.

You'll appreciate the catch can. It's been the best mod I've done on any of my trucks. It's results you can see (and dump out when it gets full).
