The idle air control valve or IAC, is an electrical actuating device designed to electromechanically control engine idle speed. Integrated into a bypass housing or located on or near the throttle body assembly the idle air control valve is an essential part of the vehicle engine management system. A properly functioning idle air control valve allows a measured amount of air to bypass the throttle plate/butterfly when it is closed, enabling the ECU to accurately control the idle speed of the vehicle's engine. It is also used to compensate for engine load and is commonly required for or during engine start-up, cold start/engine warm up, additional electrical loads, deceleration, air conditioning and automatic transmission use.

As just one of the many electrical components in your cars engine bay the IAC valve is controlled by an input signal from the ECU with the duration and frequency of the ECU input signal determining how long and how far the IAC valve opens, hence the amount of air that is allowed to bypass the throttle plate. Over time, these valves can break down or become inaccurate leading to the issues mentioned, so it is always advisable to replace as soon as these symptoms become apparent.
