idle air control

Advanced auto can have one shipped for under fifty dollars in a day or two and your problem will be solved. As age takes its toll, along with dirt and water, your idle valve slides instead of adjusting. There is an aerosol spray solution for the MAF sensor you can spray via induction tube. Hopefully it'll help. How many miles are on the car?
