Hey guys so my buddies car is running rough it sounds like its misfiring I hooked up my scan thing through my laptop and check misfires and it wasn't reading any... I erased the old codes thinking they had something to do with it and the only thing that came back was a pending p0010... He has a 09 lt I belive is the model I think it has a 2.2...... So he is what's goin through my head he hasn't changed the plugs for about 3 yrs so they need replacing I'm gonna pull em tommorow and see how they look... Also I heard the lap engines are known for dirty oil and messing with the camshaft sensors so where goin to runner a cleaner through it then change the oil... He says it only runs like crap sometimes like its a hit and miss same with the code comming and disappearing... So what r ur guys thoughts?

It can be cleared, just need a tuner to clear it for you. And you could hard reset the computer by unhooking it for 20 minutes. That will reset it for you.

When you clean the throttle body, what do you do?
Take it off and clean with a tooth brush? And is there a certain torque they bolts have to be tightened too?
