hey everyone...was driving the car today and noticed that when i slow down and push the clutch in the revs just dropped and was about to stall. It did stall once along the way to work, but at every traffic light, the car was about to stall, over revs and then settles down at 750rpm...

on the way home i was turning into my street and the car was going to stall and the steering felt heavy as if the power steering started to fail and when the revs picked up again it was back to normal.

Now this has happened before but not this badly. When it was happening before I thought it was the idle speed screw thingy, so i upped that and the revs were a little higher...helped a bit but now it's just in the s**t.

Any info and help would be great. Cheers

phong =P~

id suggest clean out the throttle body and readjust the base idle first and see how it goes from there, failing that you might have an issue with the idle stepper or ecu at worst.

What's your base idle at, with the ISC unplugged and engine warm?
