The right filter

The connector near the fan blades has a much less secure sealing design than most of the other engine controls. Just a face seal aganist sponge rubber as opposed to multiple-lip, solid rubber seals. Not only does this allow moisture and grime into the contacts but it also allows some motion between the sockets and pins.
Solution which seem to work is to flush the connector and plug with spray contact cleaner, then scrub and polish the contacts with a fine dental brush to remove oxide and dirt, then fill the connector and socket with a silicone grease. Engine now behaves as it should and has a very steady idle. A hot start problem is also gone.

Applied to my IAC connector... Not to mention all relay contacts in the relay box...and any other connector I encounter.
Not only on my Scorpio, but on my 1959 Austin Healey Sprite and my 1972 Triumph GT6.
Buy yourself a bottle and it will last you your entire lifetime. Life is too short to have to deal with poor connections.
