1997 2.5 Boxster IACV Part Number request

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I have pretty much isolated my problem to be the IACV. I am getting CELs 1514 and 1551 which are Idle Air Control Valve Opening Coil - Open Circuit and Close Circuit respectively. My symptoms are exactly http://www.pca.org/tech/tech_qa_question.a...8-2CCF5E89EFE2} where you put the clutch in (like when slowing down for a stop light) and the car stalls. It happens regularly when the A/C is on and occasionally when it isn't.

In any case, I am looking for a part number for a replacement IACV for a 1997 2.5L Boxster. Any suggestions about the best spot to buy one of these? Are these easy to self replace (like the MAF etc)? Any DIY docs floating around on this valve?

Thanks in advance,

Have you tried cleaning it? Sometimes that works.

996 606 160 01 Idle-speed adjuster (retail - $366.28)

It should come with a new gasket.

Remove the module from the throttle body by disconnection the electrical connection and then removing the two (5 mm as I recall) screws. Be sure to use some carburetor cleaner (lacquer thinner) to clean the throttle body and mating surfaces - then reinstall. Keep the carb clean off of any painted surfaces as it will take paint off.
