And never use brake cleaner on maf starting now. Its not the same stuff.
My fuel filter was changed less than 5k miles ago. Changed my MAF recently. I think I need to check my ICV.

I had the same problem - and the reason was my air intake fell off and the MAF was exposed.
Air filter was replaced 10k miles ago and everything is secure. I need to check my ICV.

Assuming the ICV is clean or has no issue with it, what's the next priority of components to check or that could be responsible for the idle drop?
