Problem Idleing

Somtimes when i start my car up or sumtimes when im just siting there idling, my car almost shuts off, the RPM's go low and the car kinda studeres. Any ideas what this could be. It happens at all different weather types and not all the time if that helps any. Thanks

sounds like your MAS is dirty and needs cleaning.

yep. Disconnect the battery, remove the piece just behind the airfilter with the wires attached. Spray COMPUTER contact cleaner on the wires and post, liberally, until it looks clean, reconnect everything.

DON'T TOUCH THE WIRES INSIDE THE TUBE!!!

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
