The first thing I would like to say is that I did use the search tool, but was unable to find the exact answer I was looking for.

I'm thinking my IAC is shot, but I did clean it and I want to confirm that I'm idling where I should be.

Cold start in park: 1100 rpm
Cold in drive: 1000 rpm

Warm park: 500
Warm drive: 500

This sounds really low to me, and the engine wants to stall once it hits 400 rpm (which it does rarely when at a stop light). Otherwise, the idle is smooth, and there is no vibration.
