Well here is the thing. It is only a 10 dollar part. Do you really want to try and clean it or just put a new one in? If you want to clean it some throttle body spray cleaner (less harsh than carb and choke) and play with it until it isnt stuck anymore. If it is really gummed up a throttle body cleaning may be in order.

I got you. Its kind of a pain in the *** but if you take off the plastic throttle body cover it will be a little easier.

Its fairly simple. Its an electrical valve. So just do the following.

1) Check for voltage at the connector. This is the two wires leading to the IAC valve.
The the ignition on(not running) . You should see 10-12.5 Volts

2) Check resistance of the terminals on Valve terminals itself.
You should get a reading of 5.0 - 14.0 ohms.

3) Make sure you don't have an interal short.
Check reistance from either one of the male terminals on the valve and then use the other prong to ground it to the side of the IAC Valve itself. You should see 10K or great ohms.
