Replaced the IACV three times. Now I am told by mechanic that I need to replace the 2 cam sensors and the crank sensor. I think they are guessing at my expense. Finally have the idle under control but now loss of power and stalling when accelerator is pressed to the floor to pass another vehicle, had gear changing and sometimes will not change gear. Tranny is fine.
