Replacing Idle Air Control Valve
I have figured out that the issue causing my 2001 Chevy Tahoe to have RPM issues when at a stop light or parked is the idle control valve. Does anyone have any idea how to replace or where to find it? All of the information that I have found online refers to ICV's that are cord driven and my Tahoe controlled by an electric throttle. Any help would be appreciated. It is hot outside and I want to get this fixed so that I can have AC when stopped. Thanks a lot for all information!!!

idle air control valves are all electrical, whether the throttle is cable or electric doesn't matter. iac's are mounted on the throttle body itself, usually with 2 bolts/screws, and an electrical connector. this link shows the iac for the 5.3 motor.
