throttle body cleaning and wheel stud replacement

does the throttle body have any protective coating?
and is changing the wheel stud pretty straight forward, and can I leave the brake caliper on.

I've been cleaning and replacing some stuff on my car, I feel like I gained from power from when I replaced the fuel filter, so I'm wondering what else needs to be cleaned or replace. I'm pretty sure the previous owners haven't done anything, I changed the spark plugs, wires, oil and fitler, then the radiator and waterpump, Then the block...

I'm thinking the throttlebody sensor should of been cleaned when I had the engine out and apart in 2012, but I never even thought of it until today.

just spray out the TB with some TB/Carb spray to clean the butterfly off...as for the stud. super easy with an impact...yes you'll need to pull the caliper off. if you've never pulled a stud through watch a youtube video. not hard once you know what you're doing

+1 YouTube an an impact are all you need. Oh and a hammer. Basically take off wheel, caliper, and rotor. Slam out the old stud, put in new one and use a nut and impact to get it tight in there.

is this right, he leave almost everything on and just hits it out.
It's putting one back in that i'm worried about, would just tightening the lug nuts up pop the stud into the right place.

and for cleaning the throttle body, does it matter how much of the cleaner I use, is it better to use more or less?

I can't really use a impact, air compressors to weak, my dad got a newer one(broken, but fixable for cheap) it should be more than enough to power an impact once we get one more part...
