So, as i'm trying to figure out what the deal is with my car, I've decided that since its at 112k miles that I should replace the throttle body gasket, since I will also be replacing the MAF Screen, and cleaning the MAF with Electronic Cleaner. What is involved with this little project? do I need anything besides the gasket?

My aunts 2000 GTP is getting a P0401 code, what causes this? and what needs to be checked/replaced?

Thanks Guys

gasket is all you need

p0401 is a EGR code (insufficient flow) cloged

Thanks Mike's, how do I go about "unclogging" the EGR?

NON-chlorinated brake cleaner ... just hose the bastard down ... spray into the egr ports on the manifold too

I think
