I'm trying to clean out the intake manifold for my '00 Odyssey using TSB 05-026. I've been able to remove everything--except the throttle body is stuck to the intake manifold. I've removed the two screws and two bolts, and it still won't move.

Any suggestions?

As long as all the hardware is removed, its probably just the old gasket holding it.

Give it a tap with a brass hammer, or a block of wood and normal hammer. They can get stuck on there pretty good.

Thanks, Ian. The hammer and levering with putty knife separated them.

Now, I'm got another problem. I finished the clean out, put everything back together, and the engine is revving at 2k-2.5k in park and neutral.

I checked that everything is plugged in. I can't figure out where I screwed up.

I seem to remember a post with putting the gasket on backwards. Check it out that all holes line up correctly. Clran the Idle Air Control valve and check all hoses. High idle is usually a vacuum leak.

I just checked the throttle gasket again by removing the throttle body, and it's lined up correctly. I'll double check to make sure that all other gaskets are seated correctly.

Check all the vacuum lines, check the TB butterfly and throttle cable to make sure its not stuck open.

Get a can of quick start or contact cleaner and lightly spray around TB and vacuum hoses to check for leaks. If revs go up there is a vacuum leak present. Be very careful stuff is very flammable, try to use it on a cool engine.

A spray can of water is a better and safer solution than an explosive product.
Where is the fun in that. :D At least put some soap in the water so you get bubbles...lol.

Mark the gasket with a sharpie, rotate and reinstal, untill the problem is solved. William is on the right track.
