Fuel-injection vehicles rely on an idle air control valve to keep air flowing through the engine, warming it up when
you start your vehicle and keeping it running while you're stopped. If it wears out, develops a blockage or stops working,
the result could affect drivability.
Be proactive and prevent potential problems by shopping with us for the parts you need.
The fuel injection idle air control valve regulates your engine's idling RPM level. When you turn on your
vehicle, it automatically goes into idling mode, remaining there until you press on the accelerator
to drive. It also sits in idle mode when you're stopped, such as at a stop sign, light or crosswalk. If your vehicle has
unstable idling RPMs or stalls while you're stopped, it could indicate that the part needs replacing.
a few issues that plague the valve, including a build-up of carbon. When carbon or other debris builds up within the part,
it causes the valve and actuator to stick or it completely blocks the passages, causing a rough or uneven idle. In some cases,
using a throttle body cleaning agent is all it takes to remove carbon build-up. Other times, cleaning temporarily masks the
issues and it's necessary to replace the idle air control valve entirely to restore your vehicle's performance. It's
important to note that sudden changes in a vehicle's RPM levels can significantly affect the life of the engine,
which is why you should undertake repairs or maintenance at the first sign of a problem.
Fortunately, you can save
time and money by cleaning or replacing the valve yourself at home. If you notice a significant change in the idle speed
control motor of your vehicle, it's important to address the issue right away. Check out the parts we have in stock,
and get your vehicle back to its optimum performance levels.
