so ive been having some idle troubles,
o2 was bad so replaced it and fixed exhaust leak
still however sometimes when i go to start it
it starts then stalls straight away, or idles really low or idles at 2000rpm -.-
spark plugs are due have replaced the passenger side as they were easy to get to today.
I have 2 amps one powering hte sub the other the front speakers i also noted that my main ground line from the engine is a aqua colour will be upgrading this soon but in the mean time i added another ground from the battery to the body
i have hids but the idle issue still occurs when there not on.
when i turn the a/c off the revs raise about 150rpm and when i turn my stereo off the idle increases very minimally
the other things im thinking might be the issue
spark plug leads?
the drivers side spark plugs?
i should note that theres no CEL on and i have checked it with the obd reader.
after changing the 2 plugs today it seems a bit calmer
idles around 500rpm except after moving if i put it into neutral or i put the clutch in before i take off again the revs rise to 1500 then drop slowly
does this sound like a neutral switch?
