Throttle Body Parts

The first one is a hose that has a cracked end. Is this a CCV hose? Does this end need replacing?

I was wondering what that is in the second picture. Can I get throttle body cleaner on that little rubber hose that comes out?

The third picture I was wondering if I could spray throttle body cleaner in the IAC housing.

Fourth: Can I spray throttle body cleaner on this plunger?

Fifth: I see dirt in my intake manifold: Should I leave this or clean it?

Sixth: How do I write text in between the pictures?

Thanks a ton, Cruiser. So should I just wipe that plunger in 4 with a paper towel after I spray it with throttle body cleaner?

I thought that was the IAC Idle Air Control. Nevertheless, the manifold that attaches it to the TB can also get filled with carbon. If you choose to clean it, be wawwy wawwy careful, (just like hunting wabbits), the gasket is fragile and cannot be purchased separately. Guess how I know this??

But is it okay to shoot TB cleaner in there?

You can use fuel line from your LPS.

LPS...local parts store.

Go buy fuel line the same id as the cracked hose. Remove the old, cracked hose and install the new piece of hose you bought. Try using a lubricating spray when installing the new hose so it goes on easily.

But do I need to buy the whole hose or just the connector to the manifold? Because the only part cracked is that fitting.

My BIGGEST concern is that little gasket that holds the IAC housing to the throttle body. Is it bad if I get it wet with TB cleaner? I really don't want to mess up that gasket because it is not a replaceable item, like JWELK said.

Just the fitting. Take it in as a sample.

Wet gasket is ok.

Thanks Cruiser, big help.

My new TPS came without a gasket. I got the most expensive one at Napa to make sure it would last long. However, it didn't come with a gasket. The guys at Napa said it didn't come with one, and to use the old gasket I had. I tried to put the old gasket on the new TPS but it wouldn't fit. Maybe the new TPS has a different design that doesn't require a gasket? Is the gasket necessary? It looks like the TB is sealed off before that so the gasket wouldn't make a difference.
