My fuel distributor was easily removed. The throttle body does not have to be touched (at least on my 420's it didnt). Remove it, whatever it takes and I used "brake parts cleaner" by Albany. It is a great solvent. I sprayed it in all every place I could. In all directions possible. I shook it while the stuff was inside it. I operate the plunger and generally worked it over with the solvent as best I could. The gremlins went away. It has worked great ever since. In my case the car had not been run for 1.5 years and I presume that the fuel had left a varnish deposits inside the thing.

Good luck.
I got too many cars!! Insurance eats me alive. Dave
