Sounds like a dirty/bad IAC. It may not set a fault code but, you should have it scanned for any set codes. Autozone and others offer this service for free on the chance they can sell you the repair parts. Many times the IAC can be cleaned with patience and the correct solvent. New cost about $45 > $100+ depending on application and source.

Hey Hurc,
Another recommendation to clean the IAC. Damn, what planet are we on? The one where IAC valves never get dirty?

Sorry, I didn't see where Hurc had responded to this post. I did not see where anyone had responded to the OP at the time (check the message header for correct time of posting). Cleaning or replacing the IAC according to the needs of the OP is a common repair for this problem. A bit of diagnostic work by a competent technician who can actually lay an eyeball on the vehicle is always best. Did I say something wrong to deserve your wrath? I hope you don't think I am Hurc! I take offense to such accusations! If you have a problem with Hurc, you need to respond to him.
Thanks, Lugnut

Hold the phone...
My post was a sidebar to the OP and your response, to point out the thread to hurc ass, who claims that IACs never fail or get dirty, and that advising anyone to clean them is foolish.
Was not intended to offend you, lugnut!

Thanks, I try to ignore YKW as much as possible. In my reader, It appeared you thought my advice was something less than useless. BTW, cleaning an IAC may not be cost effective if you have a shop doing the repair. DIY cost a few minutes of your time and the cost of the solvent assuming one already has the tools and basic knowledge to do the job. Some like my CV with an aftermatket cost of $45 makes it a tossup whether to clean it or not if it has to come out.
Regards Lugnut

I agree with you 100%, not hard at all.
