Need help with cleaning Idle Air Control

Mitsubishi Galant 98’ When I try to pop out 2 hoses connected to the IAC, they start pouring out coolant. Is it normal? please help guide me through this.

Yes. It’s normal for coolant to come out of the two hoses when they’re removed from the nipples on the IAC motor.

Tester

Yes, it is normal. Drain some of the coolant out of the radiator before working on the IAC.
