Most likely theres blockage in the passge of the IACV.You can check the valve by jumping the battery voltage to the windings,that should trigger the solenoid and change the engine speed,if the engine speed doesnt change then just check for blockage before you replace the ICV.

Sometimes the problem is in the idle control valve module, right next to the main computer. If you put a new ICV and it still has the problem, then check the module...I have a few of them for sale...
