    got all the black stuff off the throttle body but could not clean the intake
    manifold as well. is this black stuff normal or is something wrong with the

    I've seen this on my car, nothing to worry about, probably a lot of short

    You really should use throttle body cleaner rather than carb clean.
    The coating is normal. Cleaning the plate does what you need it to.
