2005 subaru legacy,i unhooked the battery and when i hooked it back up now when you start it up it has a real rough idle to the point of almost dying

the electronic throttle needs to be taught its end stop positions again. what you can try is to disconnect the battery once again and reconnect after 30 sec. then turn on the ignition but do not start. wait appr. 30 seconds then turn off ignition. start the car as normal and it should be programmed.

Cadillac cts 2003 keeps curating off when i turn to the right or when i come to a stop think its a fuel line problem

It would be easy said if it was a power steering switch.As for EGR you are not equipt with that so lets rule that out.TPS no you would have loss power and fail safe. Do a idle relearn see if that clears it up.Turn on the ignition .Turn on the ignition for 30 seconds then turn off. start it up. You should hear the TPS assemble go through the learn process. Your problem is the idle speed motor. do a throttle body cleaning

2003 Lancer OZ Rally - Erratic Idle while sitting. Acceleration and normal driving is fine but when I stop for more than 10 seconds it bounces between 400 and 1000 rpms. What could be wrong?

You may be having a problem with your IACV idle air control valve. It is located on your Throttle body(follow the tube from your air cleaner to the throttle body) It will be on the the right below the tube. It is held on by three screws. It runs $430 at the dealer. I got one off of a junkyard throttle body for $30 and recycled the rest of the throttle body.

1996 dodge 1500 with a 360 will not idle after battery was drained.

Once the battery voltage gets too low to run the ignition system then the engine will die,like you said.You need to get the alternator repaired or replace the control module that replaced the voltage regulator on these trucks.Either way,the truck is not charging the battery and it needs to be.
