for those of you that have an irradic idle and are annoyed with it heres how you clean and fix the problem.

IACV = Idle Air Control Valve

step one: locate your IACV it looks like this and on D series engines its mounted on the rear of the intake manifold near the throttle body, and on F series engines its mounuted towards the front of the car on the intake manifold near the throttle body


Step two: remove it, all you need to do is take the 2, 12mm bolts out, disconnect the electrical connection, and your heater lines that run to it. (note put a rag on the heater lines so it doesnt spill everywhere)

Step three: take some brake cleaner or carb cleaner and spray out the screen, which as you can see is very clogged on my 180K+ D15b8.



NOTE you can also take off the bottum part and inspect the gasket to make sure its clean and dirt free, and in my case it was

Step four: Let it dry, then reconnect your electrical connection, your heater lines, and your bolts and BAM your done.

Nice post!
Mines been idling at 500-600 for years, so I took the IACV off and cleaned it. It looks good now, but my car still idles at 500-600. I tried adjusting it and still nothing, what the heck?!
