I cannot find a resonably priced IAC valve online. NAPA wants 106.00 + tax. Anyone know ofa better place?
Do you

Yes they do sell them but my butt hurts on the way out ! I let them check my wifes Lincoln for stalling and they wanted to replace the computer to the tune of $500.00 ! No error codes were showing. I declined and waited a few weeks as soon as the check engine light came on I went to Advance auto parts and they did a code read and sold me an IAC for $52.00. End of problem ! I am a cerified truck and HE mechanic

Mastertechtim, My experence is different than yours ! Aftermarket suppliers are cheaper and just as good if you use a name brand.
I detest shops because I can do a complete repair job using all new parts for less than what they charge. I went to a Nissan dealer with a buddy cause he was gonna wait for his car well they worked on it for 30 minutes and pulled it outside into plain view. An hour later they called my friend and told him labor was for 1 1/2 hours ! When he screamed the guy told him even tho he only worked 30 minutes the book says the job should take 1 1/2 hours so pay up dude ! IMHO you can get paid for 120 hours work for 40 hr actual time ! I used to charge by the working hour, punched the card in and out for coffee and lunch and if I was bumped to an emergency job. No reason to rip off folks !
