Question about 2004 Ford F150
I need to know where the idle air control unit is on my 2004 Ford F-150.I have the part to replace the bad one but can't find it.Thanks for your help.
I intend to clean my iac, same symptoms and a good friend of the family who is a reputable mechanic says no need to replace jus clean out the carbon build up with some throttle body cleaner.

OK! my truck showed same symtoms! Had the trouble code read at local parts house,code came up as idle air valve ( made sense, goes dead at idle, ok) ordered part, picked up part( $100). Opened hood ,THIS PART DOES NOT EXIST ON MY ENGINE! looked everwhere. Go talk to the boys at my parts store ( we all know each other and they take pride in their work) I told them my delima , they offer blank stares ( I am driving my daughters car so they cant look for themselves). Back to the shop to ponder, hummmmmm. For some reason I decide to inspect the Throttle Position Sensor ( TPS ) dont see a problem, but hey, how can you tell now days, went to get a new one. The guys plug part in database, get #, Get part, wrong Part. mine is different. mine has FOUR PINS theres has THREE. We check these same parts for a 2005 F 150 ( guys are good ) turns out there is NO idle air valve on the 05 and the TPS has four pins not three, bought the 05 TPS( witch matched mine) installed, truck back to normal. For some reason my 2004 truck has a 2005 engine! HOW BOUT THAT!!!!
