You can remove it and clean with carburetor cleaner, also inspect all vacuum lines. I've you let me know which [engine](/topics-engine-chevy/) it has I can provide detailed info on this

I’m sorry to be pests should I switch my idle part first my brother says the truck dies when you drive it
Automotive Expert
OK if it's shutting off while driving it could be several things, are any codes present?

I haven’t change the idle not yes their codes reading

Here’s the first code

Here’s the second code

The third code

Here’s the fourth code

Ima see if it’s the idle and ima see if the mass air flow dirty
Automotive Expert
OK those other two codes would not cause it to cut out under accel. Misfire would make it run a little rough. It may be an issue with the cpi injector very common issue on these
