CIVIC VX IACV and EGR where is it located...? And how do I clean it?

Hi,
Just wondering what these two things do "IACV and EGR" and where they are located?

Also noticed in a couple other post that these get clogged. I would like to see if mine are clogged and clean them out..

This is for a 1995 civic vx...sorry I did not ad that.

egr not so much iacv and fitv usually. they are usually on the back of the intake manifold, like towards the firewall.

when you pull then off you can clean them out with gum out or any other kind of carb cleaner.

No FITV on the d15z1 (VX motor). The IACV doubles as the FITV though.
CLICK HERE for the IACV cleaning.
I'll dig up the correct EGR one and then update my links thread for easier checking

THIS is the best for the EGR cleaning that I can come up with for right now.

Is the car running better with it all cleaned out?
