I took out the idle control valve again and started cleaning some more. Noiticed this time how the valve slides back and forth, it did appear to be stuck. I cleaned some more and realized that its spring loaded, by the time I was done the valve would spring back by itself if I pulled forward on the slide.

I thought for sure this was going to solve the problem. It didn't.

I did find something else. If I pull the connector off of the idle control valve while the car is running the idle speeds up even more, when I plug it back in the idle drops to something close to if not normal. When I turn the car off and restart I'm back to the fast idle.

Does this tell me anything? Defective idle control valve?

Are we having fun yet?
