Is it throwing a check engine light? If not, you can try shooting some brake cleaner down the intake tube of the IAC valve. There's probably some gummed up carbon in there.

Still worth a try,thanks for the advise.

dude, if it is bad...POST for a replacement. Awhile ago I thought mine might be bad (turned out to be a cracked hose) but the people on this board ROCK. I had three offers to sell me one....all were about 1/8 the cost of retail.
