    My car (87 si) will idle rough a bit, i adjusted the timing, and sometimes over looked is the throttle body, taking a good old wire brush to it and making sure the flap (excuse my lack of technical terms) isnt getting stuck from build up helped my situation. its not as bad anymore, i dont have the confidence to pull everything off under there and check it out but i hopefully will get around to it, its usually revving around 2000rpm then does a heavy drop and a steady rise back up to 2000, then it will even out to 800ish. usually only occurs when the engine is cold, sometimes it will happen when idling after driving for over a half hour.
