Well, I removed and cleaned the throttle body and the car does run 100% better but the idle is still roaming. I rechecked the IAC and it'* not within specs so I'll be replacing it next. I'll keep you guys posted and a BIG thanks for the help This website is far better than any tech book you can find Thanks again

That is good your got the TB cleaned up & that a new IAC should cure the idle.
For a new replacement I would buy a Delco IAC.

Well I got around to cleaning my throttle body, no more sticking and the car is running a little better. I double checked the specs on the IAC and it didn't come within the specs , I'll be replacing that. I'll keep y'all informed.
Thanks for the help also this is the best website for auto repair help that I've been to, Thanks again

It'* probably some off the wall fix that goes against common mechanic rules. Therefore, I recommend he not post it.
