No, when you take the 4 phillips screws out of the throttle body the piece shown above will seperate. This is the IAC
If I understand your question, the IACV is under the throttle body which is towards the driver side. The other link you posted is the ACIS which is over towards the passenger side and is connected to the intake plenum. Two totally different systems.Just making sure. The little square hole you circled in pink, that is on the other side of the throttle body right?
Uh okay. I get it now. Everything is much clearer. Where did the ACIS come to my mind from?? When you said two butterfly 180 degree from each other the ACIS butterfly came to mind.

Is that what you meant?
Thanks I'm glad that I could help. The hoses will only leak a little bit of coolant. I actually suggest that you get a Throttle body gasket while doing this little project and remove the throttle body as well. It makes the IAC a lot easier to access if you can flip the throttle body over:thumbsup:Great thread, I suspect my car having this issue and will be cleaning out the IAC as soon as I have time. I have a question about the coolant lines and plugging them up. Will the coolant hoses continue to leak out coolant if I don't plug them up, or will it only leak out whatever coolant is left in the hose? I just am not sure if that step is mandatory or if I can just take the hoses out and disassemble the IAC and clean it. Thank you!
As far as the monkey gasket:Also, does anyone have the part number to the monkey face gasket or the name of it? Is it the IAC gasket that seals the throttle body with IAC?
yes, bulk works fine without kinks and without any bending coils. 5/16" ID coolant hose, but make sure it is heater or coolant hose and specifically antifreeze compatible. they didn't have the right stuff at oreilly or autozone. i had to go to NAPA to get the right kind of hose - part number NBH H149 if i recall. the website will tell you which stores have it in stock and they do in store transfers. twisting the old hose past the barb with a vice grips was the easiest way to break the old hoses free (don't do this for the bigger heater hose ends on the fire wall, tho!). use the old hoses to measure out lengths for the new ones and slice neatly with a razor blade.what is the inside diameter of those throttle body coolant hoses?
I'm looking to replace mine. i can just use bulk coolant hose, right?
