perform a search for author "johnandcandy" and keyword "idle problem" and repeat with same author and keyword "earth problem" as this will give you a good rundown of the types of problems that cause idle issues.

As you will find out, idle problems can be due to many many things but as idle is under ecu control, check for ecu fault codes 1st.

Even if no fault codes are indicated always suspect crank and cam angle sensors, idle control solenoid, spark leads, plugs, throttle sensor, fuel regulator, fuel filter air filter and o2 sensor, knock sensor and wiring and earthing.

Good luck with it and do let us know what it was :D

Cheers, itchione
