SOURCE: idle air control valve needs replacing

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.

Iscv 33

There is a digital stepper motor installed in the idle air control valve and it is operated by the ecm after taking all the outputs from various sensors.
Check engine light error code 33. The idle air control valve circuit open or shorted to ground. There could be three possibilities which can trigger this code and the check engine light comes on.
1. Check the wiring harness for open circuit or short to ground. Check the idle speed control valve connector for looseness,corrosion of poor contacts. Jiggle the harness at various places to find any damaged wire.
2. Idle speed control valve defective. (replace. Merely replacing the electronic part of the valve can also solve the problem)
3. ECM defective. (replace)

Lean idle air control valve

Idle Air Control valves are not "LEAN" or "RICH". They can either control the idle speed correctly or they cannot. What kind of problem are you experiencing?

2000 Mercury Mountaineer 5.0L engine. idle speed speeds up and slows down. Idles too fast.

dirty or bad idle air control valve i would at worst the egr valve but most likely the idle air control valve which controls the air and idle from the throttle body try taking it out and cleaning the tip as well as in the throttle body where the control valve goes in if that dosent work replace it and the check engine light does not have to be on for it to be bad.good luck to you.

I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute V-6 and I cannot keep it running at idle. I have replaced the EGR Valve and a fuel filter. It seems to be idling too slow. Any suggestions?

Go to my profile and see my tips for help with this. All you need to do is pull the idle control valve, clean it and lube it. It takes about 5-10 minutes, and your car will start and run great!
