Yes....there is: Quick, Easy IAC Fix

I've never seen any test suggestions on this forum. It's not an on/off valve, so the conventional test of applying 12v won't reveal much. Many of us just grab TB cleaner + a handful of Qtips, clean the living hell out of it, and then cross our fingers.

I found the answer for the gasket and it looks like whoever installed my motor half assed it and just made a gasket with some silicone stuff! I found the part number and pic for the actual OEM gasket. "Motorcraft CG-756 Idle Control Valve Gasket"
Still need to know how to test the IAC while off the manifold.

Diggin this up from the dead... I removed my IAC and it looked like there wasnt a paper gasket on there as someone mentioned previously on this thread. Looks like 2 rubber O rings maybe and some liquid/flexible gasket maker type stuff. So my question is do I need to make a gakset or go buy one from the dealer? Also is there a way to test to make sure the IAC is even good before I put it back in since its a pain to get out. When I plug it in and turn the car on I dont see the plunger inside do anything but stay open about 1/16".
Getting it out was easy using a ratcheting closed 8mm wrench and a mirror to help with the top bolt. Getting it back on I know will be a PIA!!!!

|amc49||I don't hesitate to take that coating off and never had any corrosion issues ever............been doing it for years on metal TBs. Maybe the cleaner there was suspect, a strong alkali soap would produce that effect and quick. I use acetone and I guarantee the coating is gone almost instantly.|

I had finals in college on the 12th yesterday, and between two full time jobs, I don't have much time!
I didn't actually remove it from the vehicle, but I did CLEARLY point out where the x2 8mm screws are at (I called them bolts; Sorry).
I also gave some extra information on what to do next (such as hoisting it up by the cables from the top, and the oil filter).
Here's the video / link:
Enjoy! I SERIOUSLY! Hope this helps someone! I also have videos now on removing/replacing the base shifter plate, PCV valve, EGR valve, IAC valve (above), and others.
