Idle

Hey bro!!! I had that same problem and all I had to do was adjust my throttle cable, where the butterfly is(above fuel injectors). I think all you need are like two wrenches. Do it while the car is running until you get a good idle. I've had mine working for about 6 months now and it rocks. Good luck.

IDLE

The butterfly is the throttle lever. It's a little round thing right above your fuel injectors on the throttle body. On it you will see the accelerator cable. There are two nuts holding it on to a little braket. All you have to do is adjust them so it pulls your throttle a little wider so the idle will pop back up. It is right on the throttle body. Let me know if you have any more questions.

another possible solution

If raising the idle doesn't work, then the problem is in one of your temp. sensors. The one the controls the choke. What has happened is that you've allowed more cool air in and its throwing off the idle so your computer trys to compensate lowering the idle until the broken sensor reaches the levels that it thinks are acceptable. If changing the idle doesn't work have the temp sensor looked at, its not very expensive at all.

thanks, j i replaced the coolant sensor about two weeks ago ( only because it looked terrible), but that is an idea too
