IAC valve....

go to repco and buy your self some carby cleaner $8 per can i think, then remove your throttle body and clean it, carby cleaner is strong stuff, if you leave it too long it will eat at the metal (like a hour or so) so spray it off and wipe it, but yeah, sounds like your IAC valve is having issues idling, i cleaned mine and it ran perfect

before, your throttle body should look like its been spray painted black
after, it should look like its brand new inside

yep, IAC valve, as said above. it also never hurts to change the fuel filter and put some injector cleaner through your fule system. a good full service never hurts:thumbsup:
