Take it off the car and spray it with some carb cleaner and then spray it with some air. That will clean it nicely!

I started laughing as I was wondering if anyone has taken parts and stuck in their dish washer?

I would use this instead of carb cleaner. Some the the carb cleaners can melt the plastic housing

Only about $6 a can

This is the correct stuff in this picture that I've used all on my EFI cars. Do not use Carb Cleaner on MAF's or throttle bodies!
