car has a bad hanging idle and i got codes p0171 and p0174.when i disconect the harness from the IAC the idle drops back like normal and the fuel trims goes back to 11% like they should.is my IAC bad ?
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
