Idle Air Control (IAC) Needed


Recommended Posts

I am in need of an IAC for my throttle body. I contacted JMC and they said I had to buy the whole throttle body for $209. I left a message at Joyner USA...they haven't called back. I found a Chinese company which have them for $17, but shipping is $32. With that I still have to hope it is the correct one which arrives.

Does anyone happen to have one laying around they would sell?

I understand a workaround would be to eliminate it and use the idle screw. I believe that would cause problems with cold start ups??? Elevation changes???

Shouldn't be a problem on cold startups except you may have to throttle for only a couple of seconds at first. The computer richens the fuel mixture when cold to run correctly. Elevation changes don't get handled by the IAC. I don't use one in mine.

I don;t know if my IAC works or not, it was failing intermittently and then I found the idle screw and adjusted it for 900 RPM and haven't had a problem since, like Lenny says, you really don't need it, disconnect it, set your idle, reconnect it, and you should be fine whether it works or not, unless it is stuck open.

Yeah, I disconnected it and it runs choppy & sputters even when I advance the throttle. I have a fuel controller & have disconnected the O2 sensor. I don't know if that has anything to do with it. Why Lenny's & yours runs & mine does not? I have one on order from China. I know it is a bad IAC, that is not in question.

Yes, I disassembled the IAC. There is a coil inside and wires finer than frogs hair. Most likely when I cleaned my throttle body and played around with the plunger I damaged some wires.

Yesterday I plugged the IAC hole and attempted to manage the idle using the idle screw. It would idle but was still choppy and bounced around. I also played with the fuel controller. It made it better, but not good enough to go out on a long ride.

The trooper is back up and running better than ever. It idles perfectly at 800-900 rpm. I found that is was a two part issue. The reason I dug into the throttle body in the first place was because although it was running ok, when I would come off the throttle it would hang at 2000 rpms then eventually come back down to idle. It was progressively hanging longer and longer. That is why I thought dirt in the throttle body may be the culprit. After cleaning the throttle body, the IAC, and the TPS it barely idled and sputtered. So, I took the IAC apart and reassembled. Then all of a sudden the idle shot up and idled at 4000 rpm. I figured I really did only harm to the IAC, but it was worth a try to save $50. So, 5 days later a new IAC arrived from China. I installed and at first is sounded good then shot up to 4000 rpm again!! I took a peak into the intake manifold with a flashlight and a mirror and realized I could see daylight. I believe when I was investigating a coolant leak I saw while I was removing my throttle body I accidentally tore off the cheap Chinese rubber cap on the front of the intake manifold with the back of my hand or arm. I plugged it and now it idles perfectly and doesn't hang at 2000 rpms after getting on the throttle.

I will post the IAC info in the parts, pieces, and info section.

      Looking for the truck bed components 2018 Textron 900 Stampede.  There is limited information available for the assembly.  Might need a parts list.

      I have an American Landmaster LM500 with an old style snow plow hook-up.  Unfortunately, the mounting bracket broke & I lost the key part where the plow receiver connects to the cross bar with two pins.
      I checked with customer service & they said...

I believe they are sold as a kit though and they are not cheap, part # 15329. I’ve included a photo below since the web store does not have a photo for that part.
      I checked with our parts department and neither the kit or the components are available as that was the older style hook up system. The only option at this point would to have something manufactured. All of our current plows are either dual actuated or winch hookup so we would only have components for those models as of currently.
      In the picture, below, it would be item #5 (the one with the two mounting brackets that hold the pins that the plow mount latches onto) - not the top one in the picture, but the one below t hat.
      I have all the other parts - but the missing part is critical to mounting the plow.
      Does anyone happen to have an old one they could part with - or have an alternative solution?
      The rig wasn't optimal, as you had to use the winch to raise & lower the blade & manually adjust the angle.  It kept falling off when I was plowing snow - as the pins that hold it in only have a groove for a pin clip & they would often get knocked off & then the plow would hang down & you'd loose the pin - then it would get all messed up.
      Thanks in advance for any advice.  I am thinking of going to a welding shop to see if they can create something - but it will still have the same limitations as before - the pins are highly specific and not cheap

      I need some help.
      I bought a new Renegade in June 2021 and have only put 60 miles on it and the other day checking cows I noticed the oil light on and the oil gauge reading zero and the oil light on.
      Is there a better oil sensing unit than the factory?   I've ordered one from Joyner ($60) but would like to have a supply if they are going to go out after 60 miles.

      Hi all, New member and new joyner trooper owner here.
      Just picked it up yesterday. I worked for it. -40C here in Winnipeg, Canada loading it into a trailer. Unit was too tall. Some ratchet straps, recopricating saw and a lot of F^#ks. 
      Anyway she came with a broken front driveshaft. One of the ears was cracked off. I have a replacement but i am unsure how the driveshaft comes off the transfer case. 
      Doesn't sem to pull off or have any way to remove it. Any suggestions??

      I thought the problem was electrical but I just found this in the oil filler tube. Does anyone recognize the part? I know I'll have to tear down the whole engine, and maybe I'll find the rest of it in there. Something beg enough to seize up the engine. That was the problem I was trying to diagnose.... 'Cause it's locked up. 
      Thanks in advance.
