I see this all the time. What usually happens when the carbon is cleaned in the intake pieces of loose carbon will get stuck in the IAC valve and cause the idle fluctuation. Most of the time the carbon can be cleaned out of the IAC, but since you have a new one that's even better. There is no easy way to replace that valve other than pulling the intake off again, which is not bad to remove. If you have a short stubby phillips blade driver you can try removing the screw from the bottom, but it is a real pain. You will save time and aggregation by removing the intake to access the screws.
You can go ahead and rate me positively. Don't worry, there won't be additional charges for asking questions after you rate so if you need more information just ask me. Thnks
Yes, after you remove the intake the screws will be completely accessible. This is how I and many other techs replace the IAC valve. Trying to access the screws while the intake is not off is a real headache and not worth the time and aggravation.
