I changed the throttle and still got the p507 and the car still revs up when what??


If you are referring to P1507 (poor idle), check the IAC valve. That is usually behind the problem. Clean IAC valve using carb cleaner Check the parts comprised in IAC system (valve, connector, wiring, solenoid). Use the carb cleaner also to clean throttle body. Check that everything is OK in the air intake (no broken parts) and try replacing filter.

Sometimes it is difficult to test in full the IAC valve. Try performing the general testing described summarily here. If that does not reveal any problem but still is very low, clean throttle body, MAF and air intake temperature sensors, replace air filter, check air intake and finally get back to IAC valve and replace it.

Below a diagram showing the IAC valve in the 4 cylinder engine. Position is slightly different in the six cylinder:

How i clean Idle Air Control (IAC) Valve

well, first of all remove from vehicle. most iac have 2 torx screws to remove it. use an old toothbrush or similar to clean it. do not put body of iac in any liquid or it will ruin it. just clean valve on end of iac. also do not push on iac valve, because it will mess up idle of vehicle. just clean the valve on end to remove carbon build up and dirt. you can use brake cleaner or throttle body cleaner for this. it is also a good idea to clean around throttle plate to remove carbon on throttle body itself. but do iac first and put back on throttle body. have a good day!

Idles high what can i do.

Get the IAC valve checked.Remove the Iac valve from the throttle body. It is on the side facing the front higher than the tps sensor. It has a 4 wire connector. Make sure this is clean. If it is dirty/dusty then clean it. This valve controls the idle speed. After cleaning it turn the ignition on with the engine off. The Iac should move in and out to find the stops. If it does not move you have either bad wiring, Iac or pcm. Most likely is Iac.
-------- For safety measures,before removing the IAC make sure you don't have any vacuum hoses unplugged. Next make sure the throttle blade closes all the way.Iac is short for idle air control valve. ------- Thanks.Helpmech.

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
  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.

How do i remove and clean the IAC


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.

Removal & Installation

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Detach the IAC solenoid connector.
  3. Remove the two 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).
