Default Throttle body coating?

A friend recently sprayed out my TB on my 2000 3.0L, with some cleanser. After he did, the check engine light stays illuminated. While looking for a loose connection, etc., I saw a sticker saying "do not spray TB or you will remove coating". Anybody had a problem like this? Any way to recoat? Is this the reason the light is on?

I don't know what the coating is but odds are the coating is not your problem there are sensors in it that he may of messed up. I have bored a few Tbodys before and that would also remove the coating. and it ran fine. go to autozone and have them pull the codes.
If you replace your Tbody you need to reset you voltage for the TPS, so you will need to learn how to do that.
good luck
