Absolute Minimal Removal of Idle Air Control & Install New IAC

Absolute Minimal Removal of Idle Air Control (IAC) & Install New IAC

My previous video has shown less IAC related removal when cleaning the IAC. This time it is the absolute minimal removal! It only took 3 minutes to remove the old IAC. Then you will have the option of cleaning it or installing a new one. I installed the new one in 5 minutes. Of course, the PCM idle learn procedure would take another 7 minutes.
This is Honda Accord 2004, my previous cleaning only lasted 2 months. My previous cleaning was to spray the IAC (Idle Air Control unit (IAC), that worked but was not thorough nor complete. This time I will replace the IAC with a new one.

Flushing coolant is a pretty easy job until the result is unexpected. I fixed the idle speed fluctuation by replacing the coolant. But one week late problem came back. The coolant hoses collapsed (strange looking hoses!). What do you do then? Eventually I fixed the problem. By watching my video, hope it can save you the time and money.
