    So we can try and figure out why it seems some people can see the pics fine, while others can't.

    Did this one yesterday, there was alot of build up in the idle screw. Clean the lot with coton wool, then used the air gun to dry it all off...

    Only problem i had was the hose at the bottom, what a pain that was to get off. Other then that it was all good

    Nice write up :bunny:

    Well this is my first post but I have to say what an execellent thread. Thanks for effort you put into this. I have been having idling problems since I had some new parts on the car I will give this a try first chance I get. Thanks a bunch from the UK Insu, I just hope the R33 GTR is similar to yours. :)

    seems my car does not adjust its idle???

    i tried screwing in/unscrewing the idle screw on the aac valve, nothing happens... sits at 900rpm

    disconnect the TPS connector, does nothing.... still sits at 900rpm

    what could be wrong?

    Just another member saying this is an excellent guide! Did my car over the weekend and worked a charm, has never run so well. Mine was so filthy im not surprised that it made such a difference.

    Cheers!

    Just changed mine to a 2nd hand unit, the idling is so much better plus when braking the RPM doesn't dive down so low now. Runs like a dream now. Very good write-up.

    Hi i tried doing this my rb25det was idling at 2300. I turned the screw as much as i could without forcing it and its still idling at 1600 does anyone know what this could be caused from? What should i do. Any help would be appreciated.

    Your problem is with the IAC valve. (cold start idle up)

    Its located on top of the inlet manifold roughly below where the throttle body resides.

    The spring can flick off and result in a constant high idle. OR it becomes gummed up and sticks a little.
