Question Idle air controller

What's the best way to clean the iac? Can I use throttle body cleaner?
I would really appreciate any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, you can use almost any kind of cleaning fluid. Make sure there's no dirt around the spring so it will move easy. Just clean everything that you can get at. If it doesn't clear your problem, they aren't too expensive to replace.
