    Espically for somebody who has been turning wrenches for years (99.9% carb'ed vehicles). On my '88 350 with TBI, what is the IAC and where is it located at? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    At the base of your throttle body............it is the Idle Air Control valve. Go here www.thirdgen.org for the method to set it properly - under tech articles.
