Inline 6 throttle body questions

ok sorry for this question but a few days ago i saw a post on here about a guy who had an idle of like 300 he cleaned something that brought the idle back up to 80ish how it should heres the question what do you clean he mentioned it had like carbon built up or something

and now my next question around the same time might have been same thread i saw something that mentioned the tension on a wire that runs to the tranny to tell it how to respond or something and i noticed today that mine is somewhat loose and i need to know how to add some tension to it....i belive it involve pushing some button thing or something but i didnt wanna start messin round....

anyone with any info on this thanks it would be much appreciated...and sorry bout this but you all know how it is with out the search funcion

It's pretty extensive but a Haynes book outlines the procedure your talking about; step by step. Good luck.

For the carbom buildup, try a product call SeaFoam. You pour it into the throttle body, crankcase, and your gas tank. Most effective way is through your TB.
