IAC valve cleaning and/or replacement

Yo Bogda,

My 1998 (2.0 ltr, 4-door sedan--Vin#1FAFP10P8WW222130) Escort idles way too fast while stopped. I'm convinced it's a dirty IAC valve and need to clean or replace it. Please help.

You need a new air intake system, exhause mannifold, and exhaust pipes. I have the same problem with my car and its the same model and same year. It will cost you about 1500 dollars for all of this, but you will get a lot better performance out of your car when you install it.

Why won't my 2002 Toyota Sienna idle on it's own? I have replaced the Throttle Positioning Sensor already.


Clean the IAC motor and inside the throttle body. This will fix your problem.

The car stops immediately after i turn on the AC


The problem might be with the Idle Air Control valve. This component is mounted on the throttle body and as its name implies it contols the engine idle speed anytime the accelerator is released.

One thing to try is to have the IAC valve removed and with a throttle body cleaner, clean the IAC valve and the idle air bleed port on the throttle body. If doing this shows no improvement with the idle, then the IAC valve may require replacement.

Engine stalls, when stopped. Engine can be warm or cold when this happens. Could it be fuel filter or pump?


first thing to do is check for vacuum leaks. grap a can of spray carb cleaner and spray hose connections and elbows while the engine is running. the idle speed will change when you hit a leak with the spray. also clean the IAC valve. Idle air control valve. This device controls the idle speed. then clean or replace the PCV valve. The EGR valve will cause problems like this if it is clogged with deposits.

98 ford escort check engine light is on the code comes up p1506 how do i fix


This code refers to the Idle Air Control Overspeed Error, I would clean the IAC, and if cleaning does not work I would replace it. It is located directly on top of the throttle valve on the intake manifold. Hope this helps, let me know.

Revs up and down at low revs


you need to clean or replace your idle air control valve(IAC). The IAC allows your engine to idle smoothly by opening and closing a valve that allows air flow to the engine that is monitored by the computer. The IAC get dirty causing it to stick and move slower than it should which causes the up and down idle

PVC valve is not metering air correctly, it will appear ok shaking it but looses it ability to maintain proper position causing a medium to gross vacuum leak.
