My 2006 Subaru impreza non turbo 2.5 keeps throwing a low idle code. I think it may be the idle control valve but I don't know where it lives on my engine.

Was thinking it was a doohickey with a black plastic top that mounts to the intake plenum but I'm not sure?

Any help is appreciated

Thanks

Thurman.

Thats usually it. You can clean them with carb cleaner and re-instal. Thats what I do as they are horribly expensive on my car. Dont try to push the plunger back in if you pull and clean it.

I bet a google search will get you a bit better info for your model year.
