How to clean the idle air control (IAC) valve and throttle body in the Dodge Ram
This is a brief demonstration of how I dismantled and cleaned the throttle
body and idle air control valve in a 5.9L 1998 Dodge Ram. This is an
amateur effort, published for free but with no guarantees of safety or
accuracy. Whenever you research a problem in your car, be sure to obtain
information from multiple sources. Any misadventure you encounter if you
decide to repair your vehicle is your responsibility.

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 all fixed. Here was the problem
I fixed the problem. It was the IAC (Idle Air Controller)
I'm sorry that the video is not more detailed but fixing it is not hard. A
few screws and a plug and some common sense on how it all comes apart and
is put back together.
I got a lot of emails and comments asking what the problem was so here is a
video pointing it out. I hope that it helps you.
Fix It Right! - Differential Service
Fix It Right! - Differential Service (S1E1)
Demonstrated on a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4WD.
In this video, we demonstrate how to perform an oft-forgotten but important
maintenance procedure: servicing a vehicle's differentials. Most vehicle
manufacturers suggest that this process be performed on regular intervals -
usually 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first - and often after
certain events such as towing. Both removable-cover and drain-and-fill
differential styles are covered, and the instructions here also cover
transfer cases on 4WD vehicles as these are generally serviced via
Be sure to check your vehicle's owner's manual for specifics for your
vehicle, such as how often to perform this service and what fluids/oils to

About the "Fix It Right!" video series:
"Fix It Right!" is a series of how-to videos intended to give
do-it-yourselfers basic instructions on proper vehicle repair and
maintenance. All of our videos show real repairs being performed on real
vehicles by real technicians in a real auto shop. (Repairs are filmed and
shown with the permission of the vehicles' owners.) Although there may be
more than one way to perform any particular repair (and in many cases there
are lots of ways!) we try to focus on the methods that will be safest and
most expedient for DIYers with limited access to tooling and equipment.
We will also occasionally be showing repair processes that are too complex
or dangerous for DIY, or require specialized tooling, expertise, equipment,
and/or certifications. Those episodes will highlight the importance of
hiring a professional auto technician for tasks that are not DIY-friendly,
and demonstrate why such tasks are best left to professionals.

How to clean a throttle body and Idle air control valve (iac)
*** PLEASE READ ***
In this video demonstration, I show how to get to, remove, clean, and
replace the throttle body and idle air control motor (aka IAC) on a 4.2l
ford motor. This procedure is the same for any fuel injected vehicle.
* * * Check out my website krkvideos.com * * *
The vans require removal of alot more stuff just to access the throttle
A dirty IAC can cause a rough idle. A dirty throttle body can harm
performance and cause rough engine operation.
When the throttle body or iac is removed a new gasket must be used to
properly seal the connection to the intake.
GM idle air motors are generally mounted on the throttle body and can be
cleaned without removal from the throttle body. This means one less gasket
and a lesser chance of creating a vacuum leak.
The ford throttle body had a note on it that said it was not to be cleaned
because the coating on the throttle blade might be damaged. Thats fine for
a new car but that has to be disregarded when working on something that has
some miles on it.
