IAC Valve Adjustment?

Does your problem only occur when cold, or does it happen when hottoo. All the time, sporadic? What grade fuel are you using, what routine maintenance if any have you done lately?

Thanks for the reply. Have replaced plugs, air filter, fuel filter, and the wires look fairly new, after picking the car up at a dealer auction. The problem only occurs at a cold start and happens about 80% of the time. I'm about to run test on the coil and wires but usually coils and wires act up while hot. Do you know of a test for the IACV ? Do you have any other ideas? I would sure appreciate some feedback. Oh yeah, 87 octane all the time.

My car has a similar problem where if I start it up when it's sat for a while, and I don't let it idle for a while, as soon as I put it in gear and press the gas the rpms will drop and sputter a little bit. The car will then go with no problems. If I let it idle for a little bit, I don't have the problem.
I think it's possibly an injector, carbon build up problem....I've got a new set of injectors to put in that I can hopefully do in the next few weeks. I can let you know how that goes.
You might want to try running a bottle of techron or other fuel system cleaner through. Put it in half tank so it's more potent.
