Re: 146 1.4 TS 16v Rough Idle...
I've been doing some reading, following Wrinx's advice, and I've seen various threads that warn not to take the IA off and clean it, since it's a 1999 car... I've been looking at it and it seems like something electric / electronic... so I'm not going to touch it... And because (if I understood corrrectly) it is an electric engine it's not likely to get dirty..., there is no need in taking it out... But the throttle butterfly is prone to get dirty because it's right next to the engine/oil breather pipe... So I guess it's a better bet cleaning the throttle butterfly...
Any special precautions or tip on doing this? Do have to use any type of carb cleaner or WD-40 to lean it?
All the Best
