Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima
The check engine light has been on my car for months. When I had it checked it was the idle air control valve. I need some detailed help on how to fix it!!!
If it is the IAC then buy one. once you know exactly what it looks like then it should be easy to see it connected to your throttle body. Look at the new one to find out where potential bolt holes are and now you know where they are on the car as well. If the check engine light is still on after you replace it try disconnecting your battery cables for a few minutes and it should reset your computer and turn the light off.

The Idle Air Control (IAC) valve controls the amount of air that bypasses the throttle valve, which controls the engine idle speed. The IAC valve consists of windings, an armature, a return spring, and a rotary slide. The engine control module (ECM) pulses the voltage to the winding, the opposing forces on the armature by the return spring cause it to maintain a fixed position, adjusting the amount of bypass air to maintain the correct idle speed.

WARNING Do NOT check for ease of movement by prying on the rotary slide with a screwdriver or other tools that could cause scratching or other damage.
