Location of iac valve on 2006 ford e-350

Doesn't have one , your vehicle has electronic throttle control .
ElectronicThrottleControl (ETC), or Throttle Actuator Control (TAC), is replacing the throttle linkage on more and more late model vehicles. The mechanical linkage or cable between the accelerator pedal and throttlebody has been replaced with a gas pedal position sensor and an electronically-operated throttle.

Electronic Throttle Control

Does not need a IAC valve .

Sounds like a dirty throttlebody plate or your electric accelerater assembly is going bad. Clean plate a retest, if it happens more ofter you should replace the gas pedal assembley and the throttlebody assembly.

My 2003 Mitsubishi Galant (V6) started to hesitate and die. It starts back up fine and will die again when I let off the gas or stop. It will run fine for a couple of months (and a few tanks of gas) and...

It is your idle air control (IAC) motor. Its located on the bottom of the throttlebody. All you need to do to change it out is remove the air intake hose from the throttlebody, unplug the connector and remove 3 screws. But the part isn't cheap. I would suggest finding on online because at a local parts store it will be around $250

1998 Saturn SC2 has been frequently stalling out.

First remove the throttle body. Then locate the Idle Air Control Valve and the 2 TAMPER-PROOF TORX screws that attach it. Soak with WD-40 (or equivalent) and use the correct size TAMPER-PROOF TORX bit on your ratchet and remove the screws (make sure not to drop them--they are NOT magnetic). Mind the large O-ring that seals the IAC to the throttle body; don't damage it because you will need it for the new IAC* (* if you don't buy GM replacement parts). While you have the IAC out, spray the **** out of the throttle body and clean the throttle plate with carb spray, a rag, and a old toothbrush(I'm serious--EVERY GOOD MECHANIC HAS ONE). This will break up the carbon and gunk collected over the years and mileage. Once you have a nice, clean, DRY throttle body (*dry is important because carb spray will expand the O-ring on the IAC and it will split or break the seal--which causes poor idle*) lube the O-ring with some White-Lithium grease (spray some on your finger tip and apply) and firmly press the new IAC into place and reinstall the screws. Reinstall the throttlebody and reconnect the hoses and wires. Crank the vehicle and let idle for at least 10 minutes so that the computer can relearn the new IAC positioning. (this is because the old, faulty IAC was sending poor signal to the computer and the new one must be seen to take orders from the computer)
