    So my drive home from work was the first time since Sunday evening where the car did not misbehave at all. I got home, checked spark plugs, they*re fine. Cleaned the connector for the #2 injector despite no apparent issue in there, and it started fine again, nothing acting up.

    Keep in mind that idle control isn't sent to the IAC until after the car is warmed up but your ECU may have figured out the IAC by now.

    If your car acts up during normal driving then I would consider checking/cleaning the EGR.

    Will do if it starts acting up again. So far so good
