Question about Cars & Trucks
Just need to know WHERE IT IS on my car so I can replace it
I will only guess because I don't know
I would say it has to be on the throttle body,
as that is the only air inlet to the motor
I would try & clean it first
When people come to this site & say they
have to replace something, it is because
they never tested anything & 90% of the
time, have no idea what they are doing or why

If it is the IAC then buy one. once you know exactly what it looks like then it should be easy to see it connected to your throttle body. Look at the new one to find out where potential bolt holes are and now you know where they are on the car as well. If the check engine light is still on after you replace it try disconnecting your battery cables for a few minutes and it should reset your computer and turn the light off.

For the do-it-yourself kind of mechanic, there is a kit sold by Prestone that will help you back flush the system using an ordinary garden hose. Available at most any auto-parts store, Walmart & such. It has the basic instructions on the container but I'll give you an overview.
You will need a large container to catch the anti-freeze coming out, You could drain it by removing the plug at the bottom of the radiator first , or remove the lower hose & get most of it out & then just flush the remainder, back-flushing is recommended.
There is a piece that fits into the radiator caps position that helps to aim the water towards a container but sometimes you can't use it due to size restrictions & limitations on space & have to catch the fluid with a drain pan as it overflows.
You will need to install a backflush connector "T". You simply cut into one of the 2 heater hoses, preferably the return line, and install that piece using 2 hose clamps to secure it. The garden hose hooks there.
The engine should be cool, you can crack a head or block by drowning a hot engine with ice cold water.
Just turn the water on slowly, once the anti-freeze stops coming out & it's just water, remove the drain pan & recycle what anti-freeze you can. Remember, most anti-freeze is fatal to birds & animals, including large dogs & children, so clean spills or at least dilute it with water until it is not a threat.
once done, drain the system & refill with the mix you prefer for your area, usually not less than a 50/50.

Hello michele151: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The manufacturer recommends replacing the belt at 60,000 miles and inspecting the belt at 30,000 miles. This would also be a good time to check the water pump as the timing belt turns it also. I always recommend replacing the timing belt with a timing kit as this way you also have the parts to replace the idler bearings at the same time. these are small bearings that turn a million times and do wear out. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer as this way I know it was of use. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
