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.

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.
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
