Default 2000 Neon

When i come to a stop my idle has been dropping down to around 500-550
rpm (lower than it used to be)..every once in a while it almost
dies...now if i barely tape the throttle the idle returns to what i
call normal 700-800 rpm.....I am leaning toward the IAC but want to do
a thorough troubleshoot,I have the factory service manual but i cannot
find any troubleshooting section for the fuel sys.
Can the IAC be cleaned?....any help would be appreciated, jp

Not at alll familiar with the Neon, but could it be a dirty throttle
body?

Try cleaning the throttle body first.
