Fire XM radio for 30 days, just need an email. So you could use new emails each time, just make fake names. Free xm for as long as they offer the deal basically.

Just run off your phone with the app. I now have XM in my car via aux cable lol

Man eff this car. Still dealing with the issue. Replacing the MAF made it better, car doesn't want to stall now. Here are my current symptoms.

After driving if you put it in neutral rolling up to a stop, it sets at 2k+ (higher with AC on) for several seconds before very slowly creeping back to idle.

If it sits at idle for a long time, it starts hunting, between 500 and 900 rpm, but if you touch the throttle it's fine.

The car drives fine under load.

If I unplug the IAC, the idle smooths out, but the car has a distinctive bog on throttle tip in. I'm thinking it could be the IAC, thoughts?

Forgot to mention that I did clean it last night, reinstalled it, re-cleaned, re-installed it again. Issue persists.

I'm really wondering if it's the IAC, or if it's something with the PCV system maybe?

This sounds like a similar issue, might be the PCV hose.

Greetings, I just went through the pain of replacing my PCV hose. It is indeed behind the intake manifold. I was told by a local Ford mechanic that it is possible to remove it without taking off the manifold, by removing the TB. I did that, was able to get at the hose but could not get it off. So I bit the bullet and took off the manifold. However, I did not take it out of the car and did not remove the radiator fans (as suggested). Unbolting it allowed me enough extra room to get at the hose and replace. It was still not that easy, but it work.

I attempted to replace the PCV valve but could not get it to come out. So, afraid of breaking it off, I cleaned it out. I was told that these rarely go bad. My hose however had a big split in the back that would have never been visible unless removed.

The symptoms leading to this replacement were the following:
1. Check Engine light- code reported O2 Bank 1 too lean
2. Car rough idle
3. Car dying when slowing to a stop

With the new hose the car runs much better and idles nice and smooth.

Thought I would share this if someone is contemplating taking on this challenge. It took me about 3 hours but was worth the experience and savings of labor cost. The only gripe is the PCV hose has to be purchased from Ford and it is $47. Throw in $20 for a set of manifold gaskets and the total cost is around $70.

Sounds like the trademeinforaSonic valve.

I've heard that is a common problem as of late with these cars.

Don't think it's the cables as driving with the IAC unplugged the car revs down fine, and they wouldn't affect idle.

Haha, not quite ready for the jump yet. Besides I hear Sonics are having some paint issue right now. It keeps getting covered in a rubber like substance?
