It did however seem to still rev up and down for the second or so that it did idle before stalling so I suspect there is another problem, but I do think the TPS is bad as well.
Dont bother its not electrical. If the iac was bad it would not move around and run the same speed all the time. Its moving cause it is clogged and rpm goes down faster than the computer can tune. So it keeps trying to adjust:pimp the iac to keep the engine running at its programmed rpm but that position is jammed up with carbon and oil goo so it just keeps hunting as its commonly called.
