    Where,exactly, is the idle air control valve on a 2004 envoy located

    It should be mounted on the side of the throttle body. But if it is bad you should also have a check engine light on and a stored trouble code for the valve.

    98 navigator lincoln will not idle

    I'm going to assume the check engine light is not on, otherwise you would have checked the computer for trouble codes by now.
    The computer adjusts idle speed by controlling the air going into the throttle body by way of the idle air control valve. The valve could be faulty, or the throttle body could be dirty.

    Engine idle speed

    Sounds like you idle air control valve is starting to mess up. You can actually take this off and clean it with throttle body cleaner and it should help get your idle back to normal. As is sounds the idle air control valve controls how fast/slow your car idles. It is located on the throttle body normally held on with a couple of screws. The throttle body is where the air duct hose coming from the air filter box ends at the engine block. Here is a picture of what you are looking for: a483326.jpg
    Make sure that you clean the valve portion and not the electrical plug with the throttle body cleaner. Let it air dry or blow lightly with compressed air before putting it back on. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for using FixYa!
