I would like to clean the throttle body on my '86 F-150 302 EFI (116M miles).  The information I found so far indicates this is done with a spray sold by Ford dealers which differs from carburetor cleaner in that it does not damage the OEM "coating" inside the throttle body.  I went to a Ford dealer today, described what I wanted, and was sold an 18 oz. can of Motor PM-2 "Spray Carburetor Tune-Up Cleaner".  When I questioned if this was the correct product, the parts man insisted it was the only product of this type that Ford offered.  The instructions say it is "Specifically designed to remove gums and other deposits from air/fuel inductions systems of gasoline engines."  Part 3 of the instructions says to "Remove air cleaner, if necessary, to gain access to throttle body" which leads me to think it is intended for and safe to use to clean the throttle body on my engine.  Would appreciate any comments and also any recommendations if there is a better product for this task.
Thank you.
Tom Gunby

I also have a Jeep that has 2 fine little wires to clean inside the
MAS. I found some stuff from Amsoil called Power Foam that does a
great job of cleaning both the MAS and the throttle body on the
injected trucks. I also spray it down the carb of my 85 F150.
