Idle Air Control Module on 2005 P71??

Idle Air Control Module on 2005 P71??

does only the LX and LX sport models have this???

If I have one I don't see it.....

I have always cleaned these up in the past, as when dirty, they always cause problems at the wrong time. rough idle, stalls hesitation...

I see part listed online but don't see it on engine and one site said
LX, LX sport as the models listed

Re: Idle Air Control Module on 2005 P71??

I looked again and don't see anything that looks like any part pic or diagram I can find for the part??? I am used to a diamond shaped head where you can take it off with 2 bolts and see in the holes and clean the junk out of the spring area...


here is my pic with the plastic engine cover off

You don't have one. It's drive by wire(no throttle cable). The computer controls throttle plate to set idle

Re: Idle Air Control Module on 2005 P71??

is that all 2005's and up? or just police package.... I can find the part for sale online.....

well makes it easy I guess... just gonna clean MAF, new plugs, some throttle body cleaner.... just to get car up to snuff...

but still gotta get trans checked to see if I can get little issues to go away...

hopefully just some seafoam trans tune and another new filter,and a flush will solve it all...

I have a few days off coming up...so we will see what trans shop says

What's the Trans doing? As far as the idle air controls I'm not exactly sure when they changed

Re: Idle Air Control Module on 2005 P71??

trans has a whine/groan from 1st to 2nd... I kinda think it is a typical Vic noise... and some times when in traffic you let up on the gas, when say someone in front of you is going to turn left, then they turn before you get there, you get back on the gas and it seem they down shift was partial? or it slips as you get going again.... not all the time nothing is harsh or clunky.... think its original fluid 85000 miles... I changed the filter and pan drop, 5 fresh quarts.... fluid is cleaner but could use a flush.... trans guy came recommended as he will only fix what is needed, not a "everybody need a rebuild type of shop" thinking seafoam trans tune and then flush. or may do it myself with the pan filter torque converter and open cooler line flush.... gotta be some varnish gumming up the works.....

Don't do a Sea Foam additive. Our supervisor had us put it in some of our fleet and within a short while, we had several trans failures. The only additive that's any good for the trans that is okay is LubeGaurd.
