The simple way of cleaning the throttle body is with the aid of carb cleaner.
Keep ignition turned off while doing this.
Remove the air intake hoses.
Spray some carb cleaner into the throttle opening and the ports inside it. Allow to soak for a few minutes.
Repeat process and get a rag to wipe the inner barrel of the throttle body. You can manually push the throttle open and the main areas would be where the throttle plate is stopped at throttle fully closed position. Ensure they are clean.
Allow the carb cleaner to dry out and install air intake hoses.
Start engine and allow to warm up and note if idling speed stabilises.
Starting might be difficult due to the presence of carb cleaner and might stutter after it starts.
