Anyones focus not idling/wont idle? IAC...CLEAN IT!

This is most likely why... i took my IAC off finally after it completely stopped idling... and holy shit its clean now lol BTW it took about 30 min if that to get it out cleaned dried and back in. it was simple. I'm just curious to see what the inside of my intake manifold looks like now

AFTER

I cleaned mine a long time ago... got better, still not 100%... replaced it... all better.
Clean first, replace if needed.

I can vouch for the "Standard" brand ICV.. . nice gasket, works GOOD.

Hoping you guys realize there's a vacuum diaphragm in there, be careful with that carb cleaner. Pretty sure it's located at the rolled crimp that joins the two ends together. These are solenoid but with a vacuum assist and stabilizer. Why the breather is on them. For vacuum venting when needed.
