I cleaned the throttle body using throttle body cleaner and a cloth, and now the engine will turn over but not start. Any ideas?

Do you
have the same problem?

Hold the pedal to the floor while cranking, it may be flooded

Check all your connections around where you worked. If they are ok, check fuel pressure, spark and compression

It worked before I cleaned it out, but now it won't even start. Is it possible the I.A.C valve is ruined?
