Thing to consider, did you also clean the throttle body, have a check engine light on, disconnect the battery for 20mins when you replaced the IAC, so the Vehicles PCM can relearn the idle?

To answer you question. yes to all the above. Everything is pointing to a vacuum leak, however, I can not find any leaks. It is very aggravating.


i had a similar problem, what i did to fix the problem was to physically pull out all the fuses(both inside the car and under the hood) check them all with a multimeter, as some of them were blown, then relearn the idle as per the manual and presto everything was perfect.
