I can't explain this or figure it out so I was hoping somebody on here can..
I recently bought an 06 WK (4.7, QDII) with 75k miles. Today, I decided to see how bad the TB looked thinking the PO never really cleaned it. I cleaned the TB out good with Intake cleaner, didn't take it off to clean it (i'll do that another day, just wanted to see how bad it was)
I also wanted to see how bad the IAC looked, which is where my problems started. I remove the hex bolt, and TRY EVERYTHING to remove it, it seemed glued in there. I took a flat head and pried it outta there after a few attempts. I couldn't believe how hard it was to take off but I got it out so I cleaned it up.
However, no matter which way I tried to slide it back in, it would not budge. I lined the hole up with the one on the TB and tried pushing it in from every angle and it would not slide in! WTF?!! By this point, I'm frustrated as all hell and wind up breaking the top off of it trying to shimmy it in...Again, WTF
Luckily, Advanced had a new one in stock. I went to replace it thinking I wouldn't have the same problem, I was wrong. Again, it wouldn't go in.. So I took the bolt and screwed it in as much as possible, now its crooked. What am I doing wrong?
I should mention I had a WJ, and replaced the IAC on that twice without issue and am fairly handy with a wrench when it comes to jeeps, I just don't know what I'm missing here.
The jeep started, and idles fine with it like it is, I just don't think its good that the IAC sensor isn't going in all the way..
