Hey bud,

Well, here is a picture of the IAC Valve on my 04 2.7, Same place. Its a T-20Tq screw, and its located underneath the IAC Valve. Just unscrew it and remove the screw by hand after. Dont drop it, can be hard to retrieve. Then just pull the IAC Valve out. Takes some wiggling.

Then just spray carb cleaner all over the inside, and use a toothbrush. Any questions, just post here.

Sounds like it could be fuel pump to me. But you will have to test it to find out for sure.

That is almost always one of 2 things:
(1) A leaky injector emptying the fuel rail and putting raw gas into one cylinder, leaving others without fuel unless you cycle the key like you did to run the pump seceral times to refill and pressurize the rail.
(2) A bad check valve or pressure regulator (built into the pump module) that is emptying out the rail with fuel running back into the tank when it sits for a few hours.

If a leaky injector, you get rough running (due to one cylinder flooded, the other 5 running lean and getting air bubbles from the rail) for a few seconds at startup, but probably will smell raw gas out the exhaust from the one cylinder that is flooded with raw gas. If it is the check valve or pressure regulator, you will get the rough running (from all 6 cylinders running lean and getting air bubbles from the rail) for a few seconds at startup, but no raw gas smell.

I found the IAC and got the screw out that holds the part in, but I've been pulling and wiggling it for a few minutes, and it is not coming out. How do you get the IAC out?

How low is it idling? It is normal for this engine to idle around 550 in gear with no A/C or Defrost on and fully warmed up to operating temps.

If you are going threw the trouble to take it off to clean it, you may as well replace it and just clean out the IAC bore.
