Check light on when taken to inspection given code which indicated to Idle control valve. Took to mechanic he said same. Try to get part but told dealer only sells. Price close to 300.00. Found part at far less then that. Mechanics can't give me straight price to install thinking after install have to check other things. My question is where is control valve located, tools needed to remove, est. Time of total work.
