Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I’m Ron and I’ll be helping youtoday.Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't knowyour skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand thatI can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience isappreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace arepair shop.My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return formy time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know youdidn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.
Sounds like a bad throttle body, but let's try a re-learn on it first. See attachment.
You did this EXACT procedure? Did you read it yet?
No, that's not necessary. Are you certain the noise is coming from the throttle body? Is the engine rough when this happens?
Then you need to check engine compression for a valve issue, That's what's wrong.
thanks again and please remember my 5 star rating:)
That iac port must be filled with carbon and the pintle valve on the IAC is hitting it. Clean the ports real good.
The whole behind the IAC valve needs to be clear. You can change valves all day long, but if the port behind the valve is plugged, this valve won't work.
YES, Please rate me now too.
