    Out of ideas for random idle dip, almost stalling!

    I had a similar issue but it would be when i push the clutch pedal in and the rpm would drop very low before stabilizing above 500. It was because I had a vacuum leak, one of my hoses were split. imo most common cause of idle issues are caused by vacuum,air leaks.

    How-to: Permanently fix the "no A/C on fan speed 2/3" problem

    Are IAC valves adjustable?

    The car idles high during cold start so it can get warm up faster. Pretty sure even brand new cars are the same. If your car idled at 700rpm cold start then that would be messed up.

    Fuel Cut?

    How does car ecu calculate boost? I think since i have p0113 code, the iat is reading extremely cold temp combined with the maf reading, it is equivalent to really high boost.

    Ok thanks for your input. I went and got camber bolts for front and rear and installed them last night. Went to another shop today and got it aligned with a printout of the measurements for $120 cash. Still a little steep I think.
