Question type: Maintenance & Repair

same thing

try looking for vacuum leaks. a vac leak will cause idle problems and could make the car die.

Sounds like there is a serious vaccuam leak some where. Check vaccuam hoses

Some people have told me it could be the idle air control. Does anybody else think that.?

when I ran the diagnostics it came up as some wiring or mass air flow sensor
