5 posts in this topic

Hi all, what is the best and safest way to clean the Air Intake Control Valve?

If you mean the IAC sensor. Idle Air Control.

I've used electronics cleaner. Take it off and spray inside the two holes until the cleaner comes out clear. Place on towel and let it dry.

I use brake cleaner. Cleaning sometimes works, sometimes doesnt. A few times, I have had to replace them when they are really bad.

MAF cleaner will work also, and like Jeff sometimes you just gotta replace it.
