2003 Ford Focus 2.0 DOHC IAC Valve

I bought a new IAC valve on ebay due to price, but now cannot seem to locate the old one to take it off and replace, I know that it is behind and below the Throttle body but if anyone out there has a diagram of where it might be so that I can get a visual (works better for me) that would be awesome, or a dummy step by step as to where it is.............getting might perturbed at the idle going so low that it wants to die at intersections...Thanks

The IACV is located between the Intake manifold and the head between Cyl 2 and 3

Look straight down at your TB between the head and manifold and you will see it

It takes a 8mm and there are 2 bolts

Cool new problem???? PLEASE HELP

ok so we replaced the IAC valve and gasket and the car is still idling poorly, at stops it idles down to where it seems like it is going to stall, but when the ac kicks on it idles back up, also noticed that when it is first started it takes a couple of minutes for the ac to kick in and blow cold, any more help out there???? (before the IAC valve was replaced I had to replace the alternator, the camshaft positioning sensor, and the timing belt for other reasons)


On a different note I am in need of a support arm for the radiator the one on the drivers side is bent and broken, so my radiator is being held up by, believe or not a bungie cord!!!! lol




This is me right now!!!!! anyone HELP me from getting a worse off headache~~
