I have cleaned the sensor and seems that the idle has improved a little....
But while disassembling the throttle body, I noticed that had too much carbonization and fuel (actually leaked as can be seen on photo) right after the throttle valve (I had cleaned about 1 year ago)... Is this normal? Another problem that I have is the exhaust (it's seems to be) explode(really loud pops) some times when I accelerate and leave the car go by the inercia...
Why is there fuel there? Bad valve timing? And is this causing the exhaust pops?
And really thanks about the other tip....
