There is no carburetor on these cars , the idle air control valve is an easy thing to change it is on the passenger side near the firewall on the back of the engine buy the new one so you know what it looks like it has a wire connector on top 2 bolts and a gasket behind it just unhook it unbolt it remove the old gasket install the new one with the new gasket and plug it in simple there is no sealer required

Which fuses would affect my idle control valve and what voltage should the wire harness show it has 4 wires.2000 dodge durango 5.2 engine

There is no one fuse that powers the idle speed control valve (AKA Air Bypass Valve). It receives its power from the electronic engine control system (known as reference) and that is controlled by the computer depending on the idle load on the engine the voltage varies. So if the system reference voltage was lost then no part of the engine control system would function.

Can't find where to put the freon in my Audi 96 A6 quattro?

Only a high pressure service valve is used for A/C system servicing. A low pressure service valve is not installed. Perform all A/C system service (ie. discharging, evacuating and charging) through the high pressure service valve only.

The fuel pump was changed,now it idles high.

The idle speed is controlled by an Engine Control Module (ECM).
It needs to be put on a computor to be checked.
The idle air valve provides the control for constant idle speed. In order to set the correct air valve opening to achieve constant idle speed, the fuel injection control unit uses information from the air mass meter, A/C switch, throttle valve switch and the ignition control unit (RPM signal) to regulate the output current to idle air valve. This means, there is alot of things that can make the idle speed go up or down...Hope this was some help to you??

My 98 audi a4 quattro just had thermostat and water pump put in still no heat and still in the shop seems like they cant figure it out either

Have them look at heater control valve. Audis have an exotic heater control valve some are in view in engine compartment, others are BURIED under dash. I highly suspect that be the issue.
