Default Watch my idle.

It has been getting worse over the last couple of weeks.
Someone school me. Is it my TPS?

One thing to note, back when I had a/c when the compressor would come on my idle would drop and not recover, even now when my fans come on the idle drops and dosent recover.

yeah i've seen it happen with the ac, but when the compressor turns off the idle will jump back up. I have the same problem with my 240 but it fluctuates greater distances and does so much faster. I think i have an intake leak, don't know about what you have.

well sort of the idle was fucked before it was idling like a muscle car haha pretty funny but now i like turn my lights on and the idle goes to like 150 but doesn't stall?? Think it would be my alternator or battery? It mite be your sensor possibly check your wires underneath. Yours isn't like, mine though mine just stays idling at 150rpms and stalls like 30 seconds later, i have to keep reving it so it wont stall.
