Default Throttle Body Gasket and IACV Question


2012 sport limited hatchback, no mods

When I let go of the brake on a flat surface, the car slowly inches forward and the engine pulses slightly. In another car I had, this was because of a dirty throttle body. Therefore, I would like to clean it. I just have a couple questions as I am getting mixed signals from my research.

1. If you suggest trying something else first, let me know. I have replaced both O2 sensors a couple weeks ago.

2. Does this car have an idle air control valve? I cannot seem to find a part for it that fits my model. The reason I ask is because it's been suggested to clean this along with the throttle body.

3. Is this the correct gasket for the throttle body? Obviously it is stated as such, but the reason I ask is because I've seen ones that supposedly fit my car that look completely different.

4. Are there any other gaskets to be aware of for this cleaning?

Thank you!
