iac valve cleaning

Hey guys i followed instructions i found on s2ki.com to clean the iac valve in order to fix a slightly fluctuating idle. there was a good amount of carbon build up that I attacked with a carb cleaner. noticed a difference in my idle afterwards. ^_^

btw this cleared up CEL code P0170 (Fuel Trim Bank 1). I rechecked it today because I have a reoccurring CEL code P0497 and after the IAC valve cleaning CEL code P0170 didn't show up. Troubleshooting code P0497 day by day, by day, by day. lol so i'll post what it is whenever I figure it out. Certified mechanics keep telling me its the gas cap. We'll see, I'm pretty sure they're being lazy. s2k drives fine though, love it
