I have performed resistance test using an ohm meter on my IACV. It gives value 50.9 k ohm. Is it bad?

It is not as simple as that. The fact that it is not 0 ohms or infinity makes it ok as you are measuring the resistence of the windings in the motor. It is the controls that need checking from the ecm. You need a scan tool to manipulate the motor to work from full open to full closed.

As I said, it is not that simple and requires a scan tool for further checks.
