Question with iac valve.... I have a 97 civic with fluctuating idol... Whenever I tap on it the idol goes back to normal temporarily... Is it save to say that it's the cause of my symptoms?

Question on this process, I've got a 1995 Acura Integra and am wondering, if I don't have any idle issues as listed in the OP, should I go through this anyway? The car has about 218K on it but I've never had any kind of hunting/rough idling.

so i cleaned my iacv and put it back on gaskets there ever thing looks in order but still has an idle surge i took a can of brake cleaner to see if maybe there is another exhaust leak and when i didnt find another leak i sprayed my iacv again and the cleaner bogged the engine after spraying it im thinking maybe i need another gasket? maybe its warped?? any thoughts.

howard: i would check and clean out your FITV if your experiencing idle flucuations as this part controls your idle speed after startup and when your englne is cold then switches over to the IACV after your car has reached operating temps. to control idle when at a stop.

thank you.
So is this why my rpm gauge canít stay in one place sometimes it works sometimes it doesnít

I did mine at ~330,000 miles because I had the intake manifold off anyway while replacing the head gasket, and everything was super easy to access. So I figured better to clean it out then than have to do it later.

This is the only time it makes sense! I have seen some guys clean it only to have a idle issue after and sometimes still have it so unless its easy to access or you have symptoms leave it be.
