Hey Jay so I got the car working but now I have a secondary problems. I receive an p0505 and p0400 code. I know one is for the IAC which has been replace. My car start fine but it has an high idle in park and neutral. When it is in drive the car work fine. Could the egr vavle from the p0400 cause the high idle. Sometime the idle flunctate between 1000-1500 rpm
