first of all, you cannot adjust the iac valve. you can adjust the throttle body stop screw but do this only after cleaning the throttle body. otherwise, you may have a vaccuum leak causing the stalling issue. Roy

There are 2 aluminum rods that control the air and gas mix. These rods are only held in place by little plastic clips. I found the rods laying on the engine. Replaced them with new clips and the stalling went away. I am not a technician so it's not a technical answer. Hope this helps.
