2005 Chevy TrailblazerI have a 2003 Chevy trailblazer 4×4 6c. I sprayed carburetor and choke cleaner in the throttle body then it died and now wont start. its been a week.


RESPONSE

Most carburetor and choke cleaner is for external use only and is not flammable. It can be sprayed onto a rag used to wipe the throat of the throttle body. But should not be sprayed into the Throttle body. Starting fluid should be used to spray into an engine as it will evaporate and not foul the spark plugs. You must have fouled out the spark plugs. You will need to remove the spark plugs and inspect them. It is safe to use starting fluid to remove any residue from the spark plugs left from the cleaner you used. With the spark plugs removed, crank the engine over a few times to clear the cylinders from any contaminates(disconnect coil to avoid shock).
