    All of a sudden when I when to start my ex it wouldnt run unless I had my foot on the gas. Even when it was up to temp. It doesnt run rough.
    I checked the air filters fine.
    I have a 97 soch v6
    I think its prob may be the IAC
    How can you test to see if this is the prob?
    What is a good Computer to buy to read the codes or check how everything is running?

    I just ordered the Equus OBD II code reader for about $100
    Anyone used it, the reviews were pretty good

    I would say that it is the IAC. An IAC costs much less than the code reader. You may be able to check if it is the problem by tapping on it and then restarting the engine. There are not many tests that can be done on an IAC with a code reader. You may get lucky and get a code out of it, but if your CEL isn't on, you'll probably be out of luck.

    The vehicle will run without the IAC connected so unplug it. You may have to adjust the throttle adjustment screw to increase the RPM's to somewhere around 600 to 750. This may help you isolate the problem.

    The last time I checked, my truck won't stay running with the IAC unplugged.. Sounds like your IAC, I was an idiot about a month ago.. cleaned the IAC and forgot to plug it back in, cranked the motor and noticed it would die right away..

    have you gotten under the hood wet lately? On a neon i once had, while getting it jump started in the pouring rain it did the same thing for about 10 minutes until. Not sure what got wet but it never did it again.
