workin on my brother's 94. Its a POS but im tryin to get it back to decent running condition. I looked at the TB and its caked with oil. I look inside towards the intake manifold and the walls are caked with oil too. Not a caramel looking color, but almost pure oil. What are the causes and is there an easy clean that I can just spray in there??

PCV oil dealy + EGR gases = 1 nasty TB and intake mani

EDIT: pcv is NOT plastic piping

Is it ok for carb cleaner to actually go into/get sucked into the manifold/engine?

PVC for sure, I'd use brake clean on the TB and leave the intake alone unless you want to remove it to clean it correctly

That cake up crap happens. Any stock engine will do that no matter what year-model or motor. Its caused by EGR, the PCV system and sometimes backfires.

Nothing to be really worried about because air flows around all that. In a carbeurated motor it doesn't happen because fuel cleans the walls of the intake on its way to the cylinders.
