THROTTLE BODY

2001 Toyota Tundra

Engine Performance problem
2001 Toyota Tundra V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 60000 miles

My Tundra (TRD 4.7 L EFI) has started to stall on some occasions when I come to a stop. Toyota has told me to replace the Throttle Body. I would laike to do a cleaning first. The service advisor, told me not to move the plate (flap) when cleaning or it could cause more problesm. Is this true? I can not find any information stating I can't move the plate when I clean.
Thanks!

Repair Procedure
If the fuel injector nozzles are visibly blocked or if the injectors do NOT pass the fuel injector volume test, complete the fuel injector power flush using the following instructions: Before an injector cleaning is performed, it is recommended that the following items be cleaned with Toyota Throttle Plate Cleaner (P/N 00289-1TP00): Idle air control device
Throttle plate (both sides if possible)
Throttle body
Bring the engine to operating temperature.
Disconnect the fuel pump electrical connector.
Start the engine. After the engine has stalled, turn the ignition switch OFF.
Disable the fuel return line by blocking the line or installing the appropriate plug in the return outlet, if applicable.
NOTE: Do NOT clamp plastic lines.

Install the device adapter to the fuel line and then secure the swivel fitting on the end of the hose.
Make sure the ball valve on the device is turned OFF (valve handle is crosswise to device). Screw the can of EFI cleaner (P/N 00289-1PF14) onto the device can adapter.
Open the valve on the device, start the vehicle, and allow it to run until the engine stalls.
Turn the ball valve OFF and remove the empty can.
Place a shop towel over the can adapter and slowly open the ball valve to depressurize the system.
Remove supply and return line adapters, reconnect vehicle fuel supply and return lines (replacing any fuel line gaskets and seals), and connect the fuel pump electrical connector.
Before starting the vehicle, pressurize the fuel system and check for leaks. Run the engine for 4 - 5 minutes, and then snap the throttle several times to dislodge any carbon that may remain in the system.
Add 1 can of Toyota Non-Pressurized Fuel Injector Cleaner - Fuel Tank Additive (P/N 08813-0080DS) to the fuel tank.
Road test the vehicle to verify normal operation.
