[V6-12v] Cleaning Idle Stabilization valve

I also cleaned my Idle Stabilizer Valve because my 90 was almost stalling at
idle. I got advice from here to spray plenty of WD-40 inside the voids of
the unit, then place your finger over the holes and shake it around to get
the fluid in every possible area then finally let the fluid come out and
then repeat this again. Wait for it to dry or use a fan if you're in a hurry
and put the unit back in. I did this over a year ago and it instantly fixed
the low idle speed and the problem hasn't occured yet.
