What issues are you having? It's always a good idea to clean the throttle body. You might get away from just spraying some cleaner in and getting your fingers and rag to wipe the back side of the valve. Doesn't hurt to remove, make sure you have another new gasket. By cleaning it, your idle will be smoother, performance, no. Check the IAC as well for carbon.
Tom is right on the money here. Cleaning the Throttle body and/or the IAC will only make it easier for the Computer to maintain a proper idle - especially when you turn on accessories like the AC or headlights. On a side note - I just spent the last 2 days maintaining and repairing an '03 PI for active duty. For some reason, the department is pulling all of the mothballed Crown Vics and making them ready for action again. Great, reliable and rebuildable cars! (Except when you get them airborne!)
totally agree. I have a 95 town car which has the 4.6l as does the crown vics. I have taken the throttle body off and you wouldn't believe the gunk is the channel. use throttle body cleaner, of course plugging the hole with a rag. I also changed the egr valve which isn't an easy task. makes a whole lot difference.
