Does not work for 2001 Windstar

      Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Idle Air Control Valve:

      Although advertised as "exact fit for your 2001 Windstar", this part actually made my surging idle worse. After troubleshooting for 2 hrs, I finally read a review that aftermarket IACs are not built to the same OEM specs. I found an OEM IAC at a local junkyard and after installing, my surging idle was fixed. Possibly the Delphi IAC might work better? I did not try. But unless the BWD IAC I purchased was bad (doubtful, as I found most products here excellent), I think your best bet is to find an OEM IAC to replace your malfunctioning IAC.

          Hi q! Good question! This part carries one year replacement warranty if that part may fail due to a defect in materials or workmanship under normal use and service after proper installation, within the warranty period stated on your original sales receipt. Simply return the part along with your original sales receipt to any Advance Auto Parts store.

      • Q:

        I've replaced the IAC valve twice on my 2003 Windstar with this product. I had a high idle. The first replacement IAC valve gave very erratic idle so I took it back and got a new one. This one runs pretty well, but on occassion it seems to stick. I'll drive along about 40mph, but when I take my foot off the gas it will stay at about 1500rpm. I've got to jam my foot on the brake until the IAC valve "unsticks." Should I try spraying WD-40 or something in the valvework?

          I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.
