Just finished the EGR valve and port clean!

If i had done this before it would probably have gone a lot quicker, cause it was pretty easy.
Only thing is now it idles like **** and stalls out all the time. Im wishing i had never done it actually now.
I know about the whole you have to drive the crap out, and i did. Its no longer blowing black crap out and when its driving on the freeway or in an environment where the rpm's are over 1k. But if i slow down to a stop sign, or slow for a turn, its stalling out. And when i idle its all chugging along, feels like a diesel.
Did i miss something? I filled up w/some fuel injection cleaner and that doesn't seem to be helping. Its been a few days since i did the deed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Just finished the EGR valve and port clean!

Funny when you search for IACV you don't get many things that seem like the help. So you search for idle problems and you find this!
the FINAL idle problem thread!!!!!

I'm wondering is that stickied anywhere cause i didn't see it. Anyways i'm going to try cleaning the IACV and see if that does the job. I'll report back later for any noobs who are bad at searching like me or if i've gone crazy and about to light the lude on fire.

*Edit* It is stickied, i'm oblivious lol

Did you touch your idle adjustment screw at all?
