My car began to run sluggish at red lights or stops when an idle rpm is needed u had it scanned,random misfire on plugs or faulty coils. Instead of chasing that specific plug or coil,i had them all replaced,parts costed only $170.00. To save time n hassel.engine light off,while i was there i changed the valve cover Gaskets for another $32.00.be sure emissions hoses are good also,good luck.
