Hi
today my van started idling "bizarre", CEL light came on, then the TCS came on. this fluctuation was from 1k-2k rpm , back and forth on and on and on. I pulled the codes and got the P0505 (MAP sensor) and p1129(IAC valve).
after reading many threads I went out and bought the IAC valve. I am hoping it will resolve this isue.
I was wondering how to get this sensor off, it looks like philips head srcews.I am afraid of stripping the
screw head.
any one have any hints or tricks to get this off, also if it is bad could I just plug the new sensor in w/out removing the suspect one, and if it still idles crazy does it reflect another issue??

thanks for any help

174000 miles never r/r any sensors

just change that on my 2004. same concern about screws. grabbed the head of teh screw with a small pair of vicegrips and it lossened it easily. you can also try the proper sized phillips dand an impact driver
