Just carby cleaned the oxy sensor ...and cleaned throttle body and all pipes. Now gonna go reset the ECU (the PROPER way thanks GT Bob).

Hopefully this will help my ferakin rough idle problem. Gotta love the I6. Oh yeah.
I would not use anything chemical to clean the O2 sensor. Best way I know to clean them without removing them is to disconnect the O2 sensor and introduce a vacuum leak so the car is lean then go for a short run on petrol (not gas). The other way is to remove it and heat it briefly with an oxy.

Are you running a free flowing filter?
eg: {K&N} it lets in 45 microns dust particle's.

anything above 15 microns can damage your engine in the long run.

Thats something some persons ain't aware of.

Degreaser and an old paintbrush works well to clean the white off the last elbow into the T/B.

I use Armorall that original protectant (think it's made for dash's and that) for plastics and rubbers in my engine bay! Cleans and shines...

whatever you do, dont use armorall on your dash, it hardens the plastic making it crack quicker

first go over it with mothers back to black, brings the colour back, and then spray some tyre foam on to protect it, i've found the meguirs hot shine tyre spray to be best for the piping, too expensive for tyres. been 6 months intake is still black, i didn't bother with the inside though.

Meguires Trim Detailer, lasts longer than Armorall.

But of course the bits' your detailing need to be clean first.
