Another weekend of wrenching has started. haha
I decided to just buy the parts from the Ford dealer and swap the PCV hose and valve myself.

I just got the intake off.

I can see now why the inside of my throttle body looked the way it did. The last pic is all the garbage that drained out after I sprayed around the openings with some carb cleaner to loosen the gunk. There was some oil inside it too.

I am going to work this evening on cleaning everything up real good and probably not finish putting it back together until tomorrow morning rather than rush it.

Anyone have any recommendations on a good way to get all this cleaned off before I reassemble?
