I'd start by removing the IAC motor & cleaning it & port it came out of with throttle body spray cleaner.. Careful, don't lose small "O" ring at base of it where it comes up flush against throttle body. Those things get gummed up at pintle and will cause stalling and give no codes. Sometimes cleaning will cure it for quite a while, but if it works & starts to do it again short time after, replace it.Not knowing your engine at this time, I can't give exact location for you to find it, but it's usually near front of throttle body, on side. If you go to autozone .com & look up IAC motor, enter your vehicle info, it should give you a picture to help you identify it easier if your not sure.
