Got an 03 soob with 122k.
Went out of town for the weekend and went on a 3 hr trip after which I let the car sit for 2 days in a parking lot. When I got back to my car and proceeded to drive home I immediately notice choppy transitions between gears and rough idling. Check engine flash after 10 minutes of driving. Things improve once I got going on the highway and was able to make it home.
Drove it up to autozone this morning and the diagnosis said Idle Air Control Valve (P0519). The part is 500 bucks . The lady said I could take it off and clean it with some Electronic cleaner and that may fix the issue.
Has anyone had experience doing this?
The car wasn't idling rough this morning when I was running some errands and seemed to have adjusted.
How long could I go with the light on? Will this issue cause any other problems if I wait a couple weeks?
