    Cleaning IAC?

    What would I need to clean the idle air control valve? And does anyone have a picture of where it is? I know it's on the throttle body but I haven't checked my Haynes manual yet (worthless book anyway). Cleaning this may fix my stalling problem.

    Thanks.

    Its on the top of the throttle body. Two torx hold it on. Just use a degreaser (Simple Green Automotive is the best).

    You can see it there on the upper left of the TB.

    Yep, carb clean or brake clean would do you well.

    What size torx is it? I need to pick one up because all I have is a T-60 for caliper bolts. I've got a bunch of allen wrenches but I don't think they will work too well but I've heard it's sometimes possible.

    It's a T15. Pick one up, guaranteed you'll use it again.
