electronic idle?

I just notice today...ill blame it on cold weather and snow. My idle drops when I push the clutch in after moving then when I hit the gas it goes up and idles between 800 and 1000. I was told theres an electronic motor that controlles that. Would cleaning things possibly help? any advice? or can i remove something?

theres an idle air control solenoid on the throttle body that might be dirty. you can gently clean it and the housing with a brush and throttle body cleaner while you taking the throttle body off for cleaning.
