    latley my car has been idling like 100 rpms, like right on the little line above zero. It generally only happens when I was on the expressway doing 80+ for a while. Yesterday I was sitting at a light and it was doing this so I hit the gas and when it dropped back to idle it actually died. Anyone have any clue why it would be doing this?

    read our article on fixing an erratic idel. a lot of that will probably apply.
    also check to see if you sucked up a squirrel into your filter. :D

    yeah I printed it out, I'm going to check all that stuff out on sat. though my idle isn't exactly eratic about 90% of the time it idles perfectly staying right at about 800rpms just occasionally it idles down at boderlines of death, I may try changing my park plug wires since they are about the only thing I didn't change when I did the swap.
