That's how we did it back in the old days. Counting flashes. That wasn't much help back then either.

Yesterday I was checking my daughter's Cherokee. That thing is more busted than not. It has an intermittent rough idle. I grabbed the idle control valve to check the electrical connection and it started getting rough. I grabbed the body of the valve and applied sideways pressure which caused the idle to go rough. I suspect that the electrical connection is okay but the unit itself has to be cleaned or replaced. The good news is that I can buy one dirt cheap on eBay. My target price is less than $10.

I'd look for cracks in the valve but more importantly cracks in the air
plenum and hoses that cause an intermittent vacuum leak when it moves around.

Vacuum hose leaks was the first thing I checked. I saw nothing obvious. After that, I checked the idle air control valve. I shall take it out and clean it. If that does not solve the problem, I'll have to look more carefully for leaks. After that I'll check the ignition system. My guess is that it's the IAC valve. Easy peasy.
