It should be on the manifold close to where the thermostatic housing is located. it should be a one wire connection. Also helpful tip, go tp autoparts store and ask to see the sensor that it is calling for your car. That will also give you and idea what your looking for.

1989 toyota camry idles too fast


You either have a vacuum leak or the Idle Air Control Valve (IAC) has become dirty and stuck. Read this

One other possibility for a high idle if you have A/C fitted is that the A/C idle-up valve has failed in the high-idle state. If this needs testing, do so when it is hot.

I have a 1994 ford explorer ,it will idle up and down and it surges when driving,during warm months it wont idle good after its getting colder it idles up and down i can cruise 45 mile an hour and never...


When idles surges its due to false air, The MAF (mass air flow) calculates the amount of air and responds to the proper amount of fuel, When you get false air such as a broken PCV valve,or ruptured vacuum hose the idle increases and you get the surge that you are describing,Your basically out of fuel control .

97 expedition 5.4 doesnt idle very good


Surging idle is usually caused by vacuum leaks. Ford 5.4L engines are notorious for the PCV hose elbow leaking back behind the throttle body.

The PCV tube goes from the right (passenger) side valve cover and loops around behind the valve body. Inspect this hose on BOTH ends.

Car idles erratically-surges and revs up and down


1.Verify that the cooling system is full of coolant and there is no air in it. 2. Remove the air boot from the throttle body and cover the throttle body with something that will stop the airflow . the Fast Idle Valve is the problem.

Surge in idle when brakes applied or after driving..


block off vacuum hose to brake booster and see if idle returns to normal if it does you need new brake booster has hole in diaphram internally some times slight hissing noise is evident in cab when pressing brake pedal to section where engine surges or idles high. also check for fuel leaks from hoses if you can smell fuel in engine bay while running and engine warm some leaks only leak while running and hot

4 runner surges when idling and once warm doesn't start


Something is riching or leaning this vehicle out at the wrong time. I'm gonna go with ERG valve being stuck in the open position. The only time this thing should work is at crusing speeds. Once the car has cooled down the fast idel cam takes over and prevent it from stalling. Once temp is within range idle cam stops and EGR is dumping into the mixture.
Use shop manual to do proper testing for the valve( probably a hand held vacuum pump is all you will need and gum out to free it up but you should properly replace it if it turns out to be the culprit.
