I had posted about my rpm increasing by itself, my vacuum lines are all good. I strongly believe that the problem is the idle air control. Is this part repairable/serviceable ? I took off the hoses and looking thru the hole I see some black residues. I was thinking of spraying degreaser in there and let it soak for a while. Would this help? I really don't want to buy that part (210$can).
Thanks for any advices!!

Re: idle air control (loujet)

Not sure what kind of car you have, but I had the same symptoms and it was my O2 sensor. If you have a 99-00 there was a recall I'm sure you are aware of. Just my .02 cents.

Re: idle air control (loujet)

i agree with you about the IAC. thats prettymuch the only thing that can only affect your idle and noting else. Try cleaning it with TB cleaner, that stuff does wonders.
