Oh, one other thing. I was on vacation once and the engine would not start. Turned over but nothing. Turned out it was a loose wire at the switch. Try simple things first.

I guess we can investigate further but it's a v Drive and exhaust collects in the water lock and out it goes. It's like a 3 ft run. The IAC at 99.9% has to be a clue but I guess that doesn't explain...

We don't think that is the problem because when we disconnected the map sensor we were able to get it to run. Once it warms up we can plug map sensor back in and it runs but runs very rough.
