Hey pple been having a prob with my car......... wanting to stall but doesnt just dives down in rpm really low once i come to complete stop.

I just replaced my tb boot as well so no leaks there checked the cooler piping and seems ok.

Could maybe ignition causing this if its off?

I have cleaned the egr as well that helped with my idle tho:D

does it want to stall when you are just idling, or when you floor it then let go of the accelerator it just about stalls then picks back up?

Boki - how did you go cleaning?

I'll have to do the same thing I think. But I'm only on one leg for another 6 weeks or so.... should be fun!
