cleaning idle air control sensor

Should the idle air control sensor have some kind of grease or oil on it?

I just removed it to see how dirty it was and it was covered in very fine black soot, when I wiped the sensor gently it revealed like an oily/greasy residue.

What would you recommend cleaning it with, I've got electrical cleaner and carb cleaner if any of that is any good?

thanks in advance.

Re: cleaning idle air control sensor

Any advice at all on cleaning this sensor.

Also does the late classic have one of these as its advertised for 2001 - 2006 only?

Re: cleaning idle air control sensor

I found out how to clean the idle air control sensor. Use electrical spray and clean it so its spotless and dry then apply a very light coating of grease on it.

I would still like to know if the late classics have the Idle control gasket before I start messing on?
