Actually, throttlebody cleaner because some of those carb cleaners have chemicals that can hurt the O2 sensor and eat up the IAC.

Really? How does a cleaner eat up a METAL IAC? And, there are oxygen sensor safe carb cleaners. Most all of them are anymore.

The IAC has electrical components that the cleaner gets into. It's not all metal or it wouldn't work now would it? The threads inside get gummed up and the throttlebody cleaner has a minute amount of lube in it most carb cleaners don't.

There's no lubricant in throttle body cleaner...

It's oxygen sensor safe for sure where carb cleaners can go either way.

And, it won't eat the coatings off on some throttle bodies that have them, where carb cleaner would.

O2 sensors don't respond well to "lube"..
