Have it read for codes, even if the check engine light is NOT on the computer will have stored information and codes. Discount auto stores will read codes for no fee. write them down.

Yea took it to the auto shop it said it was the part I just replaced cleaned my throttle body as well it's not really a big deal I don't drive it much just a yard ornament but I getting to the point whear I won't it to be my everyday car just can't find the problem .. my girlfriend loves it but she thinks it's dangerous and won't ride anymore any tips you have I'll try I'm not paying someone to charge me out the ass for something simple cause it's not big problem is it ? Befor I changed the part out I was getin 2500 3000 Rpms !

Don't the 2002 gt computer collaborate the idle control valve on its own ?
