The idle speed control actuator maintains idle speed according to various engine loads and conditions. This component also provides additional air during startup. It consists of an opening coil, a closing coil and a permanent magnet. According to the control signals from the ECM, the valve rotor rotates to control the bypass air flow into the engine.
