im hoping to smooth out my idling and generallly service the engine. im a bit confused about whether or not i have an idle control control valve and where it is on my car though. i tried cleaning my throttle body today and that hasnt changed the rough idling. couldnt remove the connector which goes here...
( BTW THIS ISNT MY TB!)
so couldent take it off, just cleaned it all out with a rag and carb cleaner .
not sure what is connected there either as this area of my engine is puzzling to me can anyone help?
i rekon it could be several things causing a fluctuating idle:
the throttle body
the idle control valve
the EGR valve which i may be trying to clean next
a different sensor.... oxygen? MAF?
a different blockage...?
a stiffness in bearing or pulley...?
