need help with low idle

my idle is low and because of it my car vibrates too much and when i use something electrical like the windows or the bass from the stereo the idle lopes up and down.also when i turn the wheel to the right or left while the cars in idle it also lopes.any suggestions on what it is?

maybe...could be a weak alternator as well.
If you know how to test the voltage, give it a whirl and see what's up.

You can do it yourself, it's real easy. http://preludezone.com/showpost.php?...6&postcount=15

It could be other thing(s) than the IAC, but it doesn't hurt to clean out that carbon buildup regardless.

...let us know

if you look on the top of the t body you will see a screw. this screw is the idle adjust. take a flat head and turn that. ive got mine set to 8-850 and it doesnt vibrate......anymore. this is a temp fix.
