What were your symptoms? Mine has a hard time turning over on occasion and I have to press the gas to keep it from dieing. This is like once a week though.

That's exactly what mine did. I pulled off the intake and cleaned it out and it starts up better than ever.

I plan on cleaning the throttle body tomorrow. Thanks for the tip. I'll reply with my findings later.
