The Idle control valve is located on the throttle body, follow the tube that goes from your air filter box to the top of the engine, that's the throttle body. If i remember right it is located on the back side of it but when you receive your part you will be able to match it up to make sure your on the right path. It is generally a very simple fix with 3 screws I believe, I think they are hex head screws. With the correct tools it shouldn't take more than 15 Min's to change.

It's on the top front of your engine inside a rounded housing. Follow the top radiator hose - the thing it clamps to is the thermostat housing. I think it's held on by three bolts - two top and one bottom.

SOURCE: Brake Fluid Sensor
I believe it is a float in the master cylinder. If it's on, check your barke fluid level. Add if needed.
The reason for low fluid is that the front disc brakes are wearing down causing the brake caliper to move out which lowers the fluid level in the reservoir. So, also check your front brakes for wear.
Please rate as fixya if this solves your issue. Thanks

SOURCE: Poor Idle, dies at stopsigns
I have used this fix for your problem for 20 years.
Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

It's not a easy job but I'm pretty sure you had one of those problems where the idle surges if this is the case take out the air intake tube that leads to the throttle body, get a can of carburetor fluid and spray around the throttle body. You will need someone to start the car and hold the gas peddle to 2500 rpm while you do this the car will shut of when you do this, restart the car and repeat the process until half of the can is used up. Now check your antifreeze level fill if needed and reset you check engine light. Now you can take the idle air back and get your money.
