There is no idle air control system on electronic throttle controlled engines.

E-throttles move the throttle plate themselves to maintain idle speed.

FWIW, there's about 3 recent threads on this idle stumble deal for 2010+ 2.5i CVTs. It's a programming deficiency that I'm sure SOA will drag their feet on fixing for everyone.
