    is it a black shitty thing that has a hose connected to the EVAP canister? or where? the D16z has a lot of tumors.

    i would say to check your idle adjustment screw also... if that has been played with too far, the throttle butterfly wont close enough and the IAC valve wont be able to correctly compensate

    coolant flows through the valve fine. i'm pretty sure it's not the thermal valve. i took the IAC off the blew to a hole on the side which did not have the screen. It's pretty tight. then i took my cousins off. i blew onto it and it's smooth. i haven't switched the valve form my cousins car yet, going to do that. that peice of shit cost me 300 bucks. i'm headed to the yard, forget a new one.
