My 2003 XL-7 will start, but will not idle. I have read quite a bit and believe I need to start with cleaning the IAC valve. I have even watched YouTube videos on how to do this. Problem is, I do not know how to locate it. Can anyone show me a picture or diagram of where it is located? I do not know much about cars, but I'm sure I can do this myself (with a little direction as to its location). Thank you
I have read this. I just don't know where that is. I know what the IAC valve itself looks like and that it attaches to the throttle body (and cleaning that may be a good idea as well). I just don't know where to find it.
You'll see a diagram of where the IAC Valve is on the 2.5 V-6. That diagram is showing the BACK of the engine, so the IAC is on the very top / back of the engine, slightly to the drivers side (US Models) as looking from the front of the vehicle.
