Rough Idle
 
Hi there

Took of ICV, what a hassle, cleaned it (used pure alcohol) put it back, what a breeze. Started it, could barely hear the engine running. Took it for a spin (280 km) runs like a dream. Suddenly rough idling is back, rpm stays above 2, only drop to 1 or below when you use gear 1 & 2.:sweating

Unplug your MAF. If the idle smoothes out, the MAF is bad.

Also, check for air leaks in the intake bellows, make sure the clamps are tight at both ends
