Inspect and test the idle air control valve and throttle position sensor

Is the idel air control valve the same thing as the EGR vavle? And how do I test the throttle position sensor?

No its not the same I suggest you get a helper that knows a little about cars and also get a repair manual-The IACV is to maintain the idle speed at all times
