not sure is that a 6 cylinder? if it is, It's probably under the intake manifold

Yes it is a 6 cylinder one.

What would be the best way to take it out then?

take off your intake manifold is the easiest...

One thing occured to me.

If I completely remove the ICV, will the car start? and what would happen then?

I think it'll start and then die right away... but I'm not 100% sure.

I have located the ICV under the Air Manifold ony after I removed the MAF.

I didn't want to remove the manifold itself as it looked too complicated with many hoses and things attached to it...

But I couldn't get to the ICV enough to take it out... do you have any suggestion on how to safely remove manifold ?

thank you,

It's possible but requires being a contortion artist and removing the throttle body. I did mine that way yesterday, it did not solve the hunting idle nor the stalling so on to next phase of trouble shooting.
