Idle Control Valve Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Idle Control Valve all about?

The Idle Control Valve is designed to control and maintain a consistent engine idle speed. The valve helps counter anything the driver may do to put extra load on the engine, such as turn on the air conditioning, sound systems, lights, etc. When the car is cold, the idle control valve helps the engine start.

Keep in mind:

The idle control valve usually goes bad because of excessive carbon buildup in the intake manifold.

How it's done:

  • Scan the computer system in the car for codes.
  • Check for any vacuum leaks.
  • Check electrical connections.
  • Remove and replace the idle air control valve if faulty.
  • Clean carbon out of intake manifold ports.
  • Clear Engine Check light.

Our recommendation:

It is a good idea to get an air induction service performed every 3 to 4 years. This will ensure that the carbon does not build up on the valve. When you are getting the idle control valve replaced, your mechanic should inspect the vacuum lines for leaks. If the vacuum is leaking, it will mimic the symptoms of a bad IAC valve.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Idle Control Valve?

  • When the engine is idle, (car not moving), the engine may stall.
  • Excessive racing noise from the engine.
  • Engine may shut off if AC is turned on.
  • Check Engine light is on.

How important is this service?

The idle control valve is responsible for maintaining a constant and consistent engine. It achieves this by ensuring that the idle speed is always constant. Many factors – such as a cold engine, the radio, or the air conditioning – effect the idling speed of the engine, so the idle control valve neutralizes these outside factors, and makes sure that the engine is consistently idling at a stable speed. When the idle control valve malfunctions, the idling speed is no longer regulated. This means that if you turn on the radio or the air conditioning, which requires power, your engine may stall. It also means that your vehicle may not be able to turn on.

Robert
20 years of experience
Robert made initial contact with me the day before the appointment to discuss the required repairs and why I thought that was what was needed. I described the symptoms and he suggested that we should also consider the possibility that additional repairs might be needed. Robert arrived ahead of schedule, introduced himself, and took my car for a very brief test ride to validate the symptoms I had provided. Within minutes after starting the repairs, Robert discovered a metal connector had broken and the repair costs were significantly reduced. Robert, subsequently returned to the parts store and purchased the actual parts needed saving me hundreds of dollars over what a similar repair would have cost me if I had gone to a name brand repair shop. Did I mention that Robert completed the necessary repairs in a hotel parking lot while I rested inside. This is my first experience with "yourmechanic.com." It will not be the last. Thank you Robert. Excellent work.
