Sorry to ask this; my service manual is at my parents' home. My IAC (or ISC, not sure which it's called) seems to be causing a small problem. Sometimes when I start the car and it's very cold out (especially this past week, it's been below 0* every time I start it), the car dies on me, unless I give it a little gas to keep it running. It starts right back up fine though. Also, I've noticed that if I'm idling in a parking lot or something and turn the wheel, the idle drops more than it should, and the car struggles for just a 1/10th of a second before it resumes a better idle RPM. Am I on the right track in thinking it's the IAC? If so, is there a method I can use to clean it and get it to work better? This isn't a serious problem by any means, but it's one I would like to eliminate.
