CEL came again early this morning. Idling is high and when I try to accelerate, it hesitates at first before it gives power. Fed up with the recurring problems, I removed the throttle body to get to the sensors.I opened the IAC and found a lot of carbon in it. Coolant lines is almost chocked. No more carb cleaner so I used gasoline. After assembly, the IAC is moving well except for a little roughness. Does it need to be lubricated? Now the CEL is gone but the idling speed does not drop to normal immediately, it takes 1 to two seconds delay before it idles normally. I can live with two seconds delay, no problem. Im just concerned if the problem comes again when im on a long drive. Should I get a new IAC or there is a more practical solution to my problem?
