Default Re: Sudden idle drop, cleaning EGR & throttle body did not correct.

I had an issue like that but I can't remember if it was my SL2 or my Ford Escort. It ended up being the idle air control solenoid. It was a simple change. The solenoid lets more air in so the engine can maintain load if the AC comes on or you put more electrical load on the car, needing an increase in RPMs while at idle.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
