bad idle

Does anybody have a problem with 5th gen idle problem when it cold, and then when it warms up it all good. i change out the idle air control valve, and bleed the system, any other ideas?

Re: bad idle

Make sure you don't have any vacuum leaks. How is it since changing the IACV?

Re: bad idle

FITV (under the throttle body) is generally the culprit for cold idle problems. IACV is warm idle problems. There is plenty of info out there on how to clean up your FITV ;)
