Read higher up what I said about the possible rubber diaphragm in one, if so you just ruined it.
And why would somebody link to a page with most of the information gone, as in pics?

This is the best way to do the IAC. But use liberal amounts of patience. Lots of patience. Thank you xecutionr.

|tdevel1961||Ligardner I replaced my motor and am experiencing the same problem maybe my hands are just too big but I can't get to the bolts from the top I figure it would be easiest to pull the intake manifold.|

You risk a serious leak by not using a gasket, the old rubber seal often is hard and having been flattened and then cooked into that shape it will NOT properly rebound to seal again. Or, asking for trouble there. Why the paper gasket is supplied, cheaper and if you leave the rubber double o-ring seal in place the paper easily seals that. Silicone by itself could too if put on competently but you see the problem there.......... You can make one up for like 50 cents from gasket material, I make all mine. Make the holes intentionally a little small to where the bolts have to screw in and you even have bolt holders to hold bolts in place while you reinstall part. I always install with top bolt missing and bottom in place, get threads well started and then part held well enough the top bolt goes in easy. Five minute max job there. On and off in ten.
If you get solvent/carb cleaner in the vacuum diaphragm that is in some of these you can kiss part goodbye. Diaphragm is located at the rolled press seam, why part has to have a vent breather on it if it has one. Depending on where the idle air is available, the IAC may not move at all at idle and could be fine. It is when the unknowing move things like throttle plate stop and other things to make the idle air different when IAC is older and carboned up shaft that the problems begin. The valve cannot move easily against shaft deposits when they are heavy and any change you make requiring a big change in distance then screws you. Why you never mess with butterfly setting even though one is there.
