    i know this has been covered a bunch and ive read all about the fitv and iacv and even air in the coolant, but assuming its not one of those, would a bad tps sensor not only make it idle bad but make it lurch back and forth when only pressing the gas a little bit like in parking lots? because im having this problem and its really irritating

    did you fix all of those problems first?
    a bad tps would affect the idle, but not that greatly.
    check your IM gaskets.

    bubbled out the coolant for the most part, adjusted the fitv (helped the idle a little bit)
    dont know where the iacv is and the im gasket may explain why there is a spare in the backseat when i bought the car the other day..... would that really make it idle that bad and buck at part throttle?
