first, here is the problem, as of last week, i notice that my car i guess happens when its warm more often but has happened when cold, will decided to drop in idle, the car doesnt turn off, but is shakes like its going to quit. all i have to do is blip on the throttle and it goes away. it normally happens when i get to a light. happens about one time out of 10. and yesterday, trying to turn the car on(warm start) the car would shut right off because the idle was too low right after it started. it did this twice. then i tried again and added throttle and no problem.

around christmas time, i gave the car a tune up but still have not replaced the oxygen sensor. also have not done the valve job, which going to get it done next week.

what can be my prob. i noticed im running a little rich. what things can i check and how.

thanks, this board is great.
