My 2000 GT had the same problem a year ago, I diagnosed the problem myself with an OBD II reader, made a websearch, bought the part ($89.00) and replaced it myself , an easy bolt on. No problem since then, Dont mess up with the idle on the TB, leave it as it is.

On your t/b, you'll see it, it's the only one of that size. Screw it IN to raise your idle.

Dont do such a foolish thing, replacing or cleaning the IAC will fix the problem. Look at the scenario below copied and pasted from a website:

Question: 1996 Ford Mustang GT V8 mileage: 85,000. I'm at the end of my rope with Ford dealers and my Mustang. Several times every week the car will not start. I'll try to get it to start, but it acts like its not getting fuel. I'll give it fuel, and it will start, then it continually stalls until I get about five miles (this is a guess since the odometer doesn't work either) down the road. I have to give it a constant supply of fuel until it works out its kinks and runs correctly. Several dealers have taken a shot at it. I've been told everything from getting new plug wires (mine are fine) to the IAC Motor needs replaced. One dealer replaced a sensor on the engine, but it started acting up again shortly thereafter. Can you help?

Answer: Your problem is likely the idle air control motor (IAC). Replacing it should fix your stalling
t00l

Yes, it IS most likely the IAC, HOWEVER, I was giving him info on a TEMPORARY fix so that he can drive to the parts store, etc. Take it easy man.

Anywho, sorry about the vauge description. Stand on the pass side of the car. Look at the FRONT (you took pictures of the TOP) of the t/b. THere should be four bolt heads, one in each corner. In the upper right hand corner, there should be a little screw with a spring between the t/b and the bolt head. Tighten that down one turn, then start the car.

If you need more help, take a pic of the FRONT of the t/b and I can show you.
