Guys thanks!!! I found the solution "to my perdicament" this is what you need:
Battery (12 volt) and leads (wires)
and most important ...carefulness
Disconnect the connector from the Idle Air Control valve
Test the valve by reading the resistance (ohms) when cold 18-23ohms when hot don't know (there is a number).
If you get proper ohms reading proceed to connect wires (any speaker wire) to the battery (hot to center pin negative to top or bottom pin. Listen to the valve click.
If you don't hear it remove throttle body then remove IAC valve (from the throttle).
Disassemble everything on the valve with screws -be very careful!!!!!!!!! Remember how everything is position on that valve.
Open BANG!!!! look at all that carbon crap clean.
Clean it with carb cleaner use toothbrush, Q-tips loosen all that crap.
Spin the magnet, Does it Spin? If it doesn't carefully use a rag and channel locks to soften the grip ang CAREFULLY spin the round magnet to loosen up. Continue to clean the center spindle ang blades and ports.
Lastly put everything together the way it was....drive 20 miles and the problem is fixed.
Hope this works...Sorry if you didn't understand please ask me any question and I will answer in more detail
