Definitely clean the ICV. Make sure the rotating cam is free to meve with your pinky finger. Look for Vacuum leaks. Check that the Throttle plate closes all the way. The clearance between the Throttle plate and the body should be 0.001 to 0.0015 which is less than a sheet of cheap printer paper. I run mine closed all the way and let the ICV do the work. ( Check that the floor mat is not holding down the gas pedel. Hey I know its stupid but it happened to some guy in the E43 Forum )
Once you make it through this list, e-mail me at [email protected] and I will go through the next list.

Regards,

Tom

P.S. If you are close by I could take a look at it for you. I am 1 hour North of Philadelphia.
