Possible IAC (Idle Air Control valve) issue on 2003 Ford Explorer

Every once in a while when I come to a complete stop or I start to decelerate, my 2003 ford explorer Eddie Bauer will start to "buck" and often eventually just dies. Once I start to vehicle back up, it runs fine. This issue occurs every few weeks or so - and usually on a cold start. My mechanic can't duplicate the issue but recommends changing out the IAC valve. Anyone familiar with this issue and can recommend replacing the IAC? Any idea how much this would cost?

what if i just want spark plugs replaced or tuned up?
