Where the red arrows are is my IACV but took the trottle body off the intake manifold it has a butterfly flap worked off the accel cable open the butterfly flap as you can see mine was manky with carbon build up cleaned it with carb cleaner and noticed my idle was even better after I done this give it a good clean the butterfly flap works off the accl cable and trottle sensor hooked up to flap to dont think you can clean the trottle sensor, but the cleaning of flap and trottle body might help ya
