Throttle body on 5SFE engine - Clean out?


Recommended Posts

My recently acquired 1993 Toyota Camry (Australian version) with a 5SFE engine has this minor problem:

The idle speed does not return to normal RPM of around 1000 or less sometimes. It will idle at 1100 or so instead. When it does this, I can push the cable driven throttle quadrant slightly and it will idle down to 950 RPM or so.

I have read somewhere that the throttle body should be cleaned out periodically. Is this the case?

If so, I will dismantle it and clean and check etc.
