How do you Remove and Replace the IAC valve on a 2000 Taurus?
AnswerThe valve is held in place by two bolts. Remove them and disconnect the electrical connector. Use a new gasket and install the new valve. Connect the wires.

It's under the throttle body. To get to it, you'll need to remove the throttle body and flip it upside down. The IAC valve is mounted by two screws to the throttle body, and it has a gasket that you will need to replace if you remove the IAC valve, so make sure you have a new gasket on hand if you intend to take off the IAC valve.
