Hi guys a bit of a long one, Basically had my ek9 all was perfect took it to Torque GT to do valve clearance and timing belt, and they rang me saying the car won't idle properly and would die if you didn't add throttle, said it was IACV so I replaced this it stopped the ca from dying but still idles poorly been months trying to figure this one out. I will list all the things I've checked/done it's helped a bit now when driving all is fine come to a stop and it drops to 300-400 revs runs **** then hunts, But once driving all is fine. If you cold start in the morning revs fine around 1500 until warm sits at 1k no issues second you use power windows ect it hunts runs poorly.

New IACV
New TPS sensor
New dizzy cap, and arm
New spark plugs
New Pcv valve

all these have helped the poor idle issues slightly i just can't get to the bottom of it.

Did you get this problem sorted?

So the car was running perfectly before going to TGT but wasn't running right since?....:shocked:

Have your tried adjusting the excelerator cable is it adjusted or been altered since? I would also reset the ECU as well.
