Pull the intake manifold off and clean out the EGR port. But pull the manifold off with the throttle body. I think the hardest part there is that there is a heater hose with coolant connected to the IAC. Remove that and it gets a little easier.01FamHauler said:What's the easiest way to pull the iacv???? the back screw is a (insert expletive here) to remove. Thanks in advance.
01FamHauler said:I just pulled the throttle body. I already ordered the gasket I just have to wait to pick it up tomorrow morning then I can get everything back together. Removing / scraping off the old gasket was the worst part.
The problem w/ my iacv is that back screw head was stripped out. I went ahead and replaced both screw w/ new ones.
Mistake or not, I think i'm going to wait on the egr port. I'm going to have some time off around Christmas so I'll do it then. (Hopefully!!!!)
My egr never threw a code, but the port caused that funny idle, I did the valves and all of them needed adjustment at 140k along with the EGR port being completely gummed up.adamrich33 said:you went about the right way, and dont mess with the egr if its not throwing a code
