Hey all, this isn't really a major problem as it only happens maybe 5 times a week, never more than once in 1 drive. What happens, is I will be sitting at the lights. The revs will be perfectly still, idling beuatifully as they usually do. Then the car will shudder and the revs will drop to near stalling point for a second and then kick back up again and continue idling fine as if nothing ever happened. Any ideas on what could be causing it?

on the magna it was probably the idle speed motor, very common problem, but on the falcon i have seen this happen twice before and it turned out to be a faulty battery, happened twice on my mates car, also seen it happen on an n14 pulsar. may not be your problem but get your battery checked
