    So i was removing my sh**ty IAC valve that came with the engine from DSM and when i tried slowly pulling it out the whole thing split apart into 3 sections (so far.) The first pic is how it came out once I unscrewed it. The second is what was stuck at first, but slid off. Now I'm stuck with the valve itself stuck in the port (third picture.) 20180808_153911.jpg 20180808_153927.jpg 20180808_153948.jpg How do I get this out? I'm afraid if i try pulling it out any harder than I tried it's going to break a piece off into my engine. WD40?

    You just split it in half. The two (2) phillips/10mm bolt is what holds the IAC on.

    You take out the two 10mm bolt on each side and pull the sensor out.. The three screws you took out are what hold the two pieces of the sensor together. You can see one of the 10mm bolts in the last picture you posted.

    You're screwed (you unbolted the wrong bolts you twaat) . There are still 2 more bolts behind the half of the sensor you removed

    Remove those two screws so the hole looks like this

    Just save yourself time and stress and remove the throttle body to replace the iac

    Agreed it's easier if you pull the throttle body

    How so? There are three, the 90 style, the original metal 91+, and the new plastic 91+ version. The 91+ plastic version is the preferred version if you have a 91+ ISC/IAC since it's less likely to short out and damage your ECU.

    Not to mention I made the revised plastic one fit my 90 and if you bought from a parts store that's the one you get?
