          This IAC valve was a perfect fit in replacing the original. My engine now starts up and idles correctly

          Installation was difficult due to the location of this part on a 5.4L 1999 F150. Would have been easy in an accessible location.

          (part is located at rear of engine, under top of firewall)

          • Q:

            2005 Lincoln Navigator. I this supposed to be attached to the throttle body? I cannot find the location of this part on the engine. I bought the part, but I cannot find where to put it. It seems there is a different IAC on the throttle body.
