Does it happen all the time? Is the check engine light on? How does it run otherwise? Thanks.

runs great no check engine light and no codes set. just cuts off sometimes when coming to idle
Chevy Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 8 years ago
Ok, considering you already cleaned the throttle body I would go ahead and replace the IAC Idle Air Control Valve, this and the throttle body are the most common causes of it to stall at idle. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
