assuming everything was ok prior to this repair, it will need an idle relearn.

AWESOME! IT WAS, SO HOW IS THE IDLE RELEARN DONE? DO I NEED TO GO TO A MECHANIC FOR THIS?
Replymastertech6371, November 21, 2011, 09:32Master
yes. it has to be done through a scan tool.

Hmmm, if the battery was disconnected for a long time (more than an hour) yes. Fire up the vehicle, let it warm, then drive the crap out of it! You will have it die at lights/stops. After a few, it will re-learn everything. Same issue on 2007 SX-4 and 2001 and 2002 Vitara.
