Won't start after Cleaning throttle body

Post by mbn2000 »

Help, I cleaned my throttle body the other day, got it looking purdy, put everything back together to the way it was, but now when I try to start it, it goes through the first starting sequence, and then goes back down to idle and dies immediately. I then tried it again and revved it, and immediately died when coming down from the revs. Please help, I'm thinking its a vacuum leak, I just don't know where or if it really is that. any help would be appreciated, thank you!!

Did you saturate the TB? One side has sensor rheostat wipers and the other side has the motor that actually moves the throttle plate. Perhaps letting it dry for a day will restore proper function.
