wasn't questioning if you did... again i was toying with an intake not to long ago and found that and thought i would share it as a "just in case" [cheers]Artic, When I pulled the IM for the PCV valve and hose replacement the first time, I grabbed all new gaskets for everything including the IACV and TB.
i would pull my intake to look how it is inside but currently the cars stuck and frozen on a berm at the bottom of my driveway and im not breaking my back to get it unstuck it can melt out on its own its on my driveway so its not blocking or harming anyone..Thanks, figured as much. I greatly appreciate everyones thoughts and ideas on trying to solve this puzzle.
No. The throttle plate never completely seals off the throttle body. If it did, the car wouldn't start....or run.... With the IACV disconnected, the idle should be just a tad bit above stall speed. The only way that's possible, is if air can seep past the throttle plate.Ok, so I haven't ordered anything as of yet, wanted to do another once over of the intake manifold and all the associated hoses, make sure I have everything connected up and torqued down nice and solid. When I pulled the IACV and Throttle body this time I decided to try and check them for vac leaks as well. So I did a light test on the back of the throttle body and light was coming through unevenly all the way around the edges of the valve flap. Shouldn't that be sealed up nice and tight against the body wall all the way around?? So I followed it with a water test on the IM side of the TB because of the IACV inlet couldn't do it the other way, and water dripped through. So if water dripped through then air will too, So I'm replacing that first. Secondly the IACV was shut when I pulled it and I've verified it open with KOEO. So I tried blowing into the bottom side of it and it is shut tight. Is there a possibility it could still be bad if the resistance reads good and it's opening and closing electrically with the ignition key???
