My girlfriends Honda accord has a rough idle when at a stop in gear. on 2001 Honda Accord

So far I have replaced the timing belt; balancer shaft belt both; drive belts; front and rear motor mounts; spark plugs; egr valve and seafoamed the intake system. I replaced the egr valve thinking it would fix this problem because i smoked tested the intake and it was leaking out of the egr. My next step is to remove the idle control valve and check for a clogged screen. at this point I am out of ideas any help would be greatly appreciated.

all Adrian told me was to bring it to his shop. I appreciate the thought of pointing me in the direction of a good mechanic but i cant afford $108 an hour.

Normally the idle control valve on this vehicle goes bad, it's a cylindrical unit on top of the intake
