Round housing with a 4 wire connector on the throttle body.
Why are you replacing it?

Roy im replacing it because my car turns off on idle. It always turns back on for like 3 seconds then it just turns off. I happen to believe maybe its the idle air control motor. Any suggestions?

Wrenchtech thanks you so much that was very helpful.

I would check for vacuum leaks at the base as the base gasket is a common failure for this issue.
Make sure the egr valve is not stuck open causing a massive vacuum leak.
And lastly, it could be the valve but can be tested with a scan tool to manually operate it.

*UPDATE* I already changed the idle air control valve (IAC) and the EGR valve and also the throttle position sensor along with the pcv valve. I put all these parts new and it still does the same thing. The car always turns on but turns off after 3 seconds. I dont know if its either a leak or something causing it to choke. It also drains the battery I always have to jump start it to turn it on every time. Please help.

Have you tested the fuel pressure?

No I havent not yet

That probably should have been the first thing you did.
It has to be 9-13PSI

So I checked the fuel pressure and its good I even changed the fuel filter. What I did notice was that the car only stays on when I disconnect the hose that runs from the back of the throttle to the map sensor, once I connect it back to the throttle the car shakes and it turns off. So I'm thinking maybe I have a bad MAP sensor, so I go and replace it brand new and it still does the same thing. It only stays on when I disconnect the hose from the throttle that goes to the MAP sensor. What could this be? And after I replaced the MAP sensor the check engine light went off. So I dont know what to do anymore? Any suggestions?

Try unplugging the the electrical plug for the MAP sensor and see if it will run any better.
