pull the vaccum hose off the fuel pressure regulator.check hose for cracks,splits,dry rot.also if any signs of fuel in the vaccum hose,replace the regulator,its bad.

Could be vacuum leak or just needs an idle adjustment.

no adjustment on the idle air control valve.pcm makes the adjusments as needed.but, the iac valve pintle and spring may be clogged with carbon,(seen this on several)you can remove the valve and clean if needed,but dont screw the pintle in or out while cleaning.
