What can you tell me about cleaning the idle control valve on a Honda Accord?


Answer by  Amber40 (24961)

Without knowing the exact year it is hard to describe the whole process. The IAC valve should be bolted onto the throttle body or intake plenum. Once you unhook the electrical plugs and remove the bolts it should com right out. Then you just need to clean it with a rag or brush and some electrical parts cleaner and re-install.

Disconnect the cable from the negative battery terminal. Remove the electrical plug from the IAC valve. Then remove the idle control valve from the throttle body. We can see two holes in the valve,one hole has sensor covered with dust or dirt. Using non residue electronic parts cleaner spray the sensor,and soak the sensor in parts of cleaner.
