removing or cleaning IACV and Throttle body?
so the mechanics have diagnosed my IACV as my problem for high idling. $435 is the estimate.
I plan to try the full cleaning, remove and scrub everything. they said they did the TB cleaner in the PCV last time, and since it started acting up again after just a couple months, they said it was time to replace the IACV.
so. can I replace maybe just the motor on the butterfly valve while I'm at this? or is it the whole job or nothing?
also, do I need a new gasket if I pull the TB? I did many searches, and there were a lot of "I don't pull it just to clean it" comments, but I think it really needs a good one... someone mentioned really getting into the IAC motor which I think does need it...
I got the link to the endwrench.com article on IAC cleaning.
I haven't gotten any CEL warnings, just a high idle and rough engine braking. replaced the PCV and it was dirty, but still working I think.
