    if possible clean it with out removing the hoses, thats how i did it on my chevy but that was alot easier to get to since it was right there in your face. or try removing the radiator cap, should help reduce the pressure i think

    all finished! everything went well. barely any coolant leaked. its idling at about 2RPM but im reseting the ECU right now.
    it was pretty dirty, the sea foam spray does a good ass job.

    yup v6. its very simple.i took out the airbox and hoses off. the throttle body has 4 bolts to take off. then just take off the small coolant lines.
    search for a write up, but its very easy.

    Yes. Its cooler air going into your engine, the cooler the air, the more dense which means more oxygen, more oxygen = more power. :D

    Is there something wrong with the throttle body, or are you just cleaning it to clean it?

    How many miles on the truck?
