IAC valve location on an '05 2.2l EcoTech I4

I am trying to locate the iac valve on this engine and am embarrassed to say I'm having no luck. Can someone please help me on this one?

Is it electric throttle? If so, it won't have one.

That is, is there a cable to inside the passenger compartment, or not? If so, the IAC will be in the same general vicinity as the throttle plate. If not, well, it's all handled by the ECU and there is no IAC.

RwP

335K miles on original motor and tranny (only motor work 2 x LIM replacement), Monroe SensaTrac struts front and back (new at approx. 300K miles), and Alero discs in back. LS fogs added with custom wiring. HID high beams, HIR low and halogen fogs. Raybestos Pro Grade front rotors and Bendix D747 ceramic pads on front.

Addendum: Rest in peace. Surge tank blew, motor overheated, I think she's lived a long and useful life.

Thank you! I came to the conclusion yesterday that it didn't exist even though my parts supply store adamently suggested it did. However, I would've never known to associate it with the throttle type. Much appreciated.

Interesting how the part just has to be there 'cuz the book sez so! I guess they've never run into a situation where the book was wrong.

Oops! Now they have.

But will they recognize that? Or admit it?

Depends on the parts guy.

The local O'Reilly's knows that if I say "No, it doesn't have a frammelstat", then I know what I'm talking about. Usually

When I upgraded my frammelstat to a forgenmister I used a left-hand spiral tapered flute reamer that they loaned me.
