I looked at info for 3.0L engine. You don't have an iac as such. You have tac/throttle actuator control. You don't have mechanical throttle cable from pedal to throttle body. It's done with wires and sensors. Any applicable trouble codes?

SOURCE: idle at 1500 to 2000 rpm

Most likely the throttle body gasket (between the throttle body and the intake manifold) is leaking.

dont take soo much in consideration after you have make all this things, some time is on only for any wire faulty, or a shrt electrical arc in any place in wire system. ask auto tap mechsnics for this maybe they have similar case before.

SOURCE: PCV valve? IAC valve? Sparkplug wire? Throttle body? Vacuum hose?

the most common causes are plug wire, plug, vacuum leak at intake, fuel injector failure and last no/low cylinder compressio.

SOURCE: IAC Valve Location - 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The idle air control valve is located on the back of the throttle body. It has an oval electrical connector and two torx screws holding it in. Unplug the connector, remove the two screws then lightly tap the body with a soft faced mallet to loosen it from the body. 
Once you have it out and prior to installing a new valve clean the seat inside the throttle body where the idle control fits. This must be very clean! Installation is in the reverse order. 
 To save some cash, pull the valve out and clean it with throttle body cleaner, this usually fixes the problem for quite a while.
Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1993 Toyota Camry IAC cleaning

1) remove the black intake hose from the throttle body
2) get a can of throttle body/intake cleaner
3) be VERY careful if you decide to use the straw included with the can of cleaner, it can detach and go inside of your intake manifold.
4) spray inside and use a rag to remove junk from throttle plate(front and back side), hold the straw on the cleaner can and spray into the hole just ahead of the throttle plate, let soak for 10 minutes or so
5) reattach intake hose and start engine - you may get black smoke/rough idle for a minute as junk exits the engine

Where is the location of the idle air control valve in a 2004 chevy malibu?


If there are no cables coming off throttle body to control throttle there is no Idle Air Control valve. the idle is controlled electronically by the computer. If car is idling rough you can clean throttle body to correct this problem. If you do have cables to control throttle the IAC valve is located right next to throttle body attached to it. Hope this helps

Can the idle air control be tested


Idle Air Control Valve

Print


OPERATION

The Idle Air Control (IAC) valve adjusts the engine idle speed. The valve is located on the side of the throttle body. The valve is controlled by a duty cycle signal from the PCM and allows air to bypass the throttle plate in order to maintain the proper idle speed.
Do not attempt to clean the IAC valve. Carburetor tune-up cleaners or any type of solvent cleaners will damage the internal components of the valve.


TESTING

See Figure 1

0900c152801e4967.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 1: The IAC can be monitored with an appropriate and Data-stream capable scan tool

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
  2. Disconnect the wiring harness from the IAC valve.
  3. Measure the resistance between the terminals of the valve.

Due to the diode in the solenoid, place the ohmmeter positive lead on the VPWR terminal and the negative lead on the ISC terminal.
  1. Resistance should be 6-13 ohms.
  2. If resistance is not within specification, the valve may be faulty.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the IAC solenoid connector.
  3. Remove the 2 retaining bolts and remove the IAC solenoid and gasket from the throttle body.
  4. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Use a new gasket and tighten the retaining bolts to 71-97 inch lbs. (8-11 Nm).

If scraping is necessary to remove old gasket material, be careful not to damage the IAC solenoid or the throttle body gasket surfaces or drop material into the throttle body.
See Figure 2

Have a 1996 Mitsubishi Galant and need intstuctions on how to replace the Idle Air Control Valve


You'll have to remove the throttle body to replace the idle air control (IAC) valve. First, disconnect the negative ground cable from the battery. Then remove the vacuum line and air duct intake. Then disconnect the IAC and throttle position sensor (TPS) electrical connections. Remove the coolant hoses that are connected to the IAC. Disconnect the throttle cable from the throttle body. Now, remove the 4 bolts that hold the throttle body to the manifold and remove. Be careful with the gasket located between the throttle body and manifold and replace it in the same position. On your clean work surface, turn the throttle body over and remove the 4 phillips head screws holding the IAC to the throttle body. Clean the parts with a dry cloth but do not use solvents on the IAC or TPS. That's it!

Diagnostics test says idle air control underspeed error? how do i fix 1999 ford explorer


change the idle air control valve.

Idle Air Control (IAC) Valve OPERATION The Idle Air Control (IAC) valve controls the engine idle speed and dashpot functions. The valve is located on the side of the throttle body. This valve allows air, determined by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and controlled by a duty cycle signal, to bypass the throttle plate in order to maintain the proper idle speed. Fig. 1: Typical Idle Air Control (IAC) valve which is mounted to the throttle body - cutaway view shows air bypass direction 89684g16.gif
--- REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. To remove the IAC valve, first disconnect the negative battery cable, then the IAC wire harness plug 89684p03.jpg
    Next, remove the two IAC valve attaching bolts . . . 89684p04.jpg
    . . . and pull the valve from the intake manifold 89684p05.jpg

  2. Disengage the wiring harness connector from the IAC valve.
  3. Remove the two retaining screws, then remove the IAC valve and discard the old gasket. To install: When installing the valve, always discard the old gasket and install it using a new one 89684p06.jpg

  4. Clean the IAC valve mounting surface on the throttle body of old gasket material.
  5. Using a new gasket, position the IAC valve on the throttle body. Install and tighten the retaining screws to 71-106 inch lbs. (8-12 Nm).
  6. Attach the wiring harness connector to the IAC valve.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.

The idle has an intermittant stumble


Your Idle Air Control (IAC) valve may be dirty with carbon, simple fix with throttle body cleaner through the IAC passageway through the throttle body. Make sure it's throttle body cleaner and not carburetor cleaner, the carb cleaner is to corrosive to the gaskets used on the throttle body.
If cleaning the IAC does not help, then it's a good chance that the IAC is to far gone and will need to be replaced.
Good luck and thank you for using fixya
