SOURCE: IAC control valve. Locato\ion 2002 ford escape

If it's not idling and has problems starting, it's probably the IAC motor. It's located on the throttle body. Follow the airfilter box all the way to the engine, where the rubber flex hose attaches. The throttle body should be the first aluminum part you come to. Attached to the side you'll find small little aluminum part with a small wire harness attached. Unplug it, take the IAC motor off and clean inside with carb cleaner. This should fix the problem with the idle.

    Low rpm on my 95toyota tacoma, untill about2800rpm

    Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

    This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

    1 Answer

    After cleaning the throttle body it looks to be stuck and RPM remain above 2000 when idling. Engine accelerates and decelerates going back to idling at about or above 2000 RPM.

    When you cleaned the throttle body, did you remove the Idle Air Control valve/motor (IAC)? A dirty or defective IAC can be the result of your problems. The IOAC regulates your vehicles idling under various condictions. Try cleaning it first then replace if needed.

    Please remeber to rate this solution. Thanks!

    I have a 2001 tacoma prerunner that does not want idol we replaced one off the coil packs an its still dose not want to run have to keep it in over drive

    With info that you are giving me I only deduct that , maybe your idle control valve is stuck open with carbon buildup, clean the throttle, let some of the carburetor cleaner go to the idle control valve hole then spray gently compressed air in the Idle Valve hole. When you remove the throttle tube to clean the throttle plate you will see a little hole, that is the idle control valve hole.
