Idle air control motors may become carboned up at 100,000 miles on Toyota Tacoma

Problem Description and Possible Solution
The idle air control motors tend to become carboned up at around 100,000 miles and will cause a start and stall and/or stalling at stop sign problems. Many times these valves can be cleaned, however, the sure bet is to replace the idle air control motor and clean the throttle body.

My high mileage Tacoma has been hard to start as of late and just today it stalled on me just
as I pressed the gas pedal to drive off a parking lot. I restarted it, took my foot off the gas
and it died again. I restarted again and revved the engine for about 15 seconds and it solved
the stall problem temporarily. This problem seemed to happen after my truck engine was idle for
about five minutes.
