OK, I believe that is the first year they came out with the totally electronic throttle body. I agree it is likely the IAC, but you might be able to resolve it with the idle relearn procedure. Need to know if there are throttle cables out to the throttle or if it is all electrical. Could be either on this model year. Let me know when you can!
