re: Where is my ISV?

QSW? (The same engine as the 4000q.)
Any tips on how to get it out/off? I guess from what I've read here, I
should just clean it out real well with carb cleaner?>>
It's easy to find. Turn on the key, but don't start the car. It's the thing
that's buzzing at the end of the cylinder head near the firewall, held on with
a rubber strap. To clean, disconnect it, reconnect the wire, put a pail under
it to catch the dirty carb cleaner, turn on the key to make it buzz/open and
close, and spray liberally with carb cleaner. Drain well; it'll be full of
black gunk. Don't touch the moving parts with anything.
