You really can't clean the IAC on the G2's like you can on the G1's...there is no removable needle. You might just have to replace it.

Question Re: strange idle issue

Ok so i replaced my IAC a few days ago cleaned the throttle body and installed my ultra-gauge, the gauge shows 0% when fully closed but then will intermittently show 2.75 to 3.5% even when the throttle is completely closed and the idle issue will reappear then go away? Any suggestions... BTW I've had no codes pop up

Are you sure it wasn't the wiring going to the TPS or a bad contact?

Thats what I thought at first, I even tested it and got 6 ohms thru the sweep so I thought it was good, Oh well problem solved now i can stop tearing my hair out.
