When you say your car's idle speed hunts, by how much does it vary and does the engine vary several hundred rpm while sitting at the same red light or does it idle a little high at one red light and then lower at the next light? If it varies a lot at the same red light, can you say how quickly it hunts around?

The reason why I ask is that my car's idle varies a little bit too, and I'm wondering if I have the same problem as you. In my case though, the car's idle doesn't hunt all the time. Sometimes it just idles around 900-950 when I've set it for 800.
