1 Answer


I had the same issue with mine. it was stumbling while idling once the engine warmed up. I spent many days trying to trace the issue. Did a compression test and leak down test and found no issues with the engine, checked for vacuum leaks and In the end it turned out to be the on board computer under the kick pad on the passenger side. I hit it with my fist and the problem went away. I suspect the computer will eventually shit the bed and I will have to replace it. For now its running fine, doesn't miss a beat.
