    Rpm would go up and down from 700 to 1200 while idling and would shut off when I came to a full stop. I cleaned the throttle body and valve but problem persisted. Then I found a used throttle body with idle air control valve attached on ebay so I bought it and replace the part and the problem was fixed.
