Idle/stalling issue cleaned iacv and still stalling.

Yes I cleaned the iacv to make sure it wasn't causing the idle to plummet but it still does it. If I turn the ac on it plummets, if I gas it a little it plummets, if I shift into neutral and come to a stop it plummets. Whats worse is it actually stalls and turns off in neutral. I almost rear ended a person getting home and almost crashed into a wall turning. It just shut off, the steering wheel locked up and I couldn't do **** except brake and hope for the best. Whats going on here? Ever since I bought it, it was doing perfect and outta no where it begins to turn off on me. Believe me I need the ac as well, I live in vegas, you can survive without it but it will be hell.

Only thing I haven't done concerning rough idle in that thread is check for vacuum leaks

I have a 1998 Prelude SH

Edit: found the idle problem thread about fluctuating idles, sorry, I did search, I just didn't scroll all the way down :p.
