Low Engine Idle and/or Stalling Due to Dirty Idle Air Control Valve on Toyota Avalon

Debris can get into the idle air control valve. This will restrict the air flow into the engine, causing idle speed and/or stalling when cold. The valve can be cleaned or replaced to correct this concern.

It is very intermittent on low idle and dies. Haven't solved yet been living with problem for several months.
Idle was erratic, sometimes racing, sometimes it wouldn't idle without pressing throttle. Had mechanic clean the IAC valve and fixed the problem.
