the idle valve on my 96 vectra is located on the throttle body i should think its the same on yours anyway first take off the thick pipe going from the air box to the carb tie it back so you can get at the idle valve then take off the elecrical connector going onto the idle valve undo the 2 alun screws holding the idle control valve to the throttle body theres 1 on the top and 1 on the bottem take the valve off and give it a good spray with choke and carb cleaner wipe with a cloth and refit should do the trick if engine is idling to fast or cutting out

The idle air control valve on a Vauxhall Vectra B is located on the intake manifold. The valve is placed in front of the air tubing, right behind the engine cylinder head.

Why do you want to locate the idle control valve? is it cutting out at junctions? Best thing to do is remoove the throttle body, clean all the black gunge out, especially between the throttle plate and the side wall. Refit it and away you go.

To fix high idle problem on a 1996 VS Commodore, first locate the idle air control valve. Unscrew and unplug electrical connector running to the valve. Turn the valve over and clean the sensor for debris.

Yes you will have a heater control valve but try and locate one from other than the dealer because it will cost you around $135.00 dollars.........

The idle air control valve controls the neutral idle of the 2001 Honda Accord. A faulty idle control valve leads to an erratic idle. To replace it first locate the valve on the intake manifold. Unplug the unit and remove the three bolts holding it to the manifold.

Depends on engine type. There is no fixed location.

The idle air control valve is attached to the bottom of the throttle body. It is computer controlled and not manually adjustable, however if you are having idle problems it could be stuck or clogged. You should clean it when you clean your throttle body as part of routine preventive maintenance. You can remove it, run the engine, and verify that the valve moves.
