Can I clean my IAC on my Buick centry?

I would like to clean my IAC myself.

Yes you can. You should unbolt it from the throttle body. Then you should soak it in a type of cleaning solovent overnight. You could just use gasoline would work fine. Then you need to blow dry it off with compressed air. Then you just need to bolt it back on the throttle body.

The easiest way to do it is to get some throttle body cleaner from your local parts store. Remove the rubber intake hose. Then crack open the throttle plate and squirt the cleaner in, you should be able to see where the IAC is. Use a qtip to clean it.

You should be able to do this yourself. Start by locating the IAC on the intake. It should be mounted somewhere near the throttle valve. Simply unhook and unbolt it. Then give it a good cleaning with some electrical parts cleaner and re-install.

Yes you can. Take a rag, spray some brake cleaner on it and rub only on the IAC to remove dirt. Sometimes it's easier if you remove the throttle body.
