Default Idling problems and wierd Cel problem.. Help please

Ok.. so i've been having these wierd idling problems for quite a while now. Im thinking the iacv is messed up, I tried cleaning it a bunch of times, it worked but would **** up again.. So im guessing I need to buy a new one.

But my question is, after the car runs for like 10-15 miles on this messed up idle( like around 1.8k) The check engine like comes on.. But everytime I try to pull the code, my accessport reads no cel's were found? wtf? every single time.. I cant get the code but the check engine light always comes back on?

The AP should be able to pull the code, I always use it to pull codes. I had a idle problem for a while with a cell, turned out to be my intake. I only started having the problem after i cleaned my MAF, which was weird. I had the short ram on for 50k+ without a problem, until i cleaned the MAF. Do you have a aftermarket intake? Try swapping back to the stock intake if you have an aftermarket. It worked for me.

The AP can read some codes, but it is NOT an OBDII device so it does not accurately report all codes.
Get the car scanned with a proper OBDII scanner at Autozone, a local shop, dealer, or by another member in your area with the right equipment.
