A question regarding my FITV.

Is it possible to the FITV without having to remove the entire Intake Manifold?
I have still been getting a really low idle even at operating temperature, even after cleaning the IACV. Picture below.

While I'm at it I am going to clean my EGR valve as well. I'll get to the EGR ports later into next week or so.

Re: A question regarding my FITV.

you can remove the FITV without pulling the IM. its bolted to the bottom of the TB. you can bypass it all together since you live in hot ass texas. ive had mine bypassed for some time now...no issues what so ever....

Re: A question regarding my FITV.

there is a few write up's on the net but in a nut shell....
1 remove the FTIV
2 trace the outline of the valve in either metal or your favorite cereal box
3 cut said outline and drill or cut holes
4 use some sealent on the valve and the TB in the outline of the gaskets (I used rtv black with no issues)
5 reinstall the valve and leave the coolent lines off and loop said two coolent lines (connect them to each other)
TADA...in a nut shell

Re: A question regarding my FITV.

Yeah BigLegs I remember reading a DIY on how to by-pass it. Would it be better to just bypass it rather than clean it out? Either way, I wouldn't mind. I'll look it up later. and yes it is very hot out here! :[ My car is sitting outside in the open sunlight because I wasn't able to find a gasket I needed, so I have to wait until tomorrow.

I saw that DIY awhile back, I'll look for it. Thanks for the help!

Re: A question regarding my FITV.

It's really only a 20 minute job to clean it. I used gratuitous amounts of carb cleaner on it. It's 3 bolts (10mm) and 2 coolant lines (needle nose pliers) IIRC. You'll see better results if you remove the plunger and clean it. Install the plastic retainer all the way then back it off half-a-turn.

Re: A question regarding my FITV.

anybody know how to tell if the IACV is broken? I've cleaned it all out and i'm still having a surging idle plus my car "kicks" whenever i get on and off of the gas pedal

Re: A question regarding my FITV.

Sorry to bring this thread again, but after cleaning the iacv, fitv, and tightening down the wax seal with a half turn-back so its not tight, I still have really low rpms. I tried to adjust it using the idle screw and still no luck. Can there be anything that I overlooked?
