Formulated for rapid and safe removal of deposits such as gum, sludge and varnish around the throttle body, carburetor and choke, it maximises engine performance by improving fuel system performance.

As enthusiasts, we definitely love a car that reacts quickly to our throttle inputs. Trackies will attest to the fact that engine blowby will eventually gum up the throttle body butterfly valve area, if the car isn’t fitted with an additional oil catch tank. Thankfully, DIY cleaning is now made easier and totally safe with WD-40’s specialist offering!


How does it work then? First, you have to remove the piping leading to your car’s throttle body. With the engine warm and running, gently spray down the inner wall of the throttle body to blast off any dirt that is clinging to the side. You may have to rev the engine a bit to sure that it doesn’t stall.

This also means that it will help to clean the insides of the air intake system as well. Alternatively, if you are patient, you can dismantle the entire air intake system and give it a good blast of the WD-40 cleaner to thoroughly clean the entire throttle body assembly.


The immediate difference can be felt right after the cleaning process. Not only is our test car much more eager to rev and accelerate, the occasional hard starting, rough idling and stalling issues were mostly resolved in just one cleaning session. WD-40 also claims that it helps to reduce in emissions and fumes. It is completely safe for catalytic converters and oxygen sensors.
