it started doing it sat after coming from a highway drive.i disconected the battery,did the idle relearn,check for vacum leaks etc.would the IAC just act up just like that ? i just put this one on the car a year ago

Randy, it sounds like the maf curve is off, but if you did'nt have a problem with it before then try cleaning the maf sensor since sometimes the K&N oil can get on it, also if you think the idle valve is causing it, clean it out with carb cleaner.
Usually if you are running too rich because of the maf you will get hanging idles, etc.
