And get the brand name Vise-Grips by Irwin.If not, I like to keep a few pairs of needle-nose vise grips. Work great for stuff like that, if there's enough room for a dremel in there there's enough room for those!
They're still available.... To add to the problem is no one makes an official JIS bit/screwdriver anymore, it's a combo JIS/Phillips bit, a compromise, but better than a straight phillips in a JIS screw...
If everything goes to crap while trying to remove that last screw, you might be able to just remove the head of the screw then install the new or cleaned IAC with just the three remaining screws.... the left front I can get, the other 3, not so much. To add to the...
With the impact driver, philips/JIS does not matter. You can take a completely stripped and rounded out screw out with one of those because when you beat it with a hammer, it forces its bit into the screw head. So even if there is no "philips" left, it will makes its own while it spins to break it loose. Then you simply unsrew it the rest of the way by hand.I'll look into the impact driver shown at Lowes, at $19.99 US, it's a good price and may have something a bit better than the old standard Phillips bit but who knows though.
Huh, I guess my bits are the compromised version then.Huh. JIS. I never knew. Explains a few things.
This page has a great write up on it:
I took a picture of my parts engine where the IAC attaches to the intake.So my plan is once I get that chowdered screw out, remove, clean and put back on using original gasket, if there is one and hope it's still OK and later can replace as needed, ..
Now to get the idle to work, unless the IAC is toast, but I'd see a code for that won't I?
