Issue / Question:
High idle – changed the IAC valve three times, the last time I scraped and vacuumed out the carbon. Each time it runs great for 2-3 days, then the idle revs up really high. I turn the truck off, wait for a minute, and then turn it back on and it runs fine for a few minutes then idles high again.

Answer:
It sounds like the ISC is trying to compensate for an intermittent vacuum leak. Its possible that the EGR valve is sticking open for carbon.
