It's on the side of the throttle body. On our V6 I unbolted it and pulled it back from the TB to hose out the guts. On the I4 I believe there is a square or triangular hole in TB into which you can spray cleaner. A search for IAC should turn up more specific information.
You can download a manual here which should provide some additional guidance...

if all else fails, you can also just turn up the base idle as more of a temporary fix

does the car always stall at a light? or only when hot?

^ did you reconnect your maf properly? did you damage any of the wires? double check...the no-start condition will be be due to your MAF readings at the ecu

the wires can't really get mixed up per se, but with age, people have been known to damage their maf wires since you may have to yank on them a bit to get them disconnected.

but this may not be the case though as well



did you actually take your MAF off to clean it? or did you just spray the electronics cleaner inside your CAI? not sure if it would make a difference, but you maf seems to be sending no signal

no signal = no start

bad signal = bad start, or spluttering then dying

yeah, the spray is MAF safe...

on a no-start condition, you have to check three things- fuel, spark, and air....or bad sensor readings

it could be something else as well, but it's doubtful (or at least very coincidental) if you had just tried cleaning out your maf for it to be something else
