I had same problem with my '93 Ford Probe. It was a head gasket leaking coolant in the cylinder during idle but higher rpm driving would prevent the coolant from entering the cylinder due to the higher internal cylinder pressure. Check your coolant & oil for any discoloration. If coolant has an oily film or is slightly brownish or if oil is perhaps slightly milky then I would suspect a leaking head gasket.

Car do's not idle correct irregular idle

what type of vehicle is it? usually an irregular idle is caused by a vacuum leak (high idle for the most part) now a surge could be a problem in your coolant sytem it will need to be bled to stop the surgeing and this is usually a long and slow surge but if your surge is quick or rapid this would most likely be your iac (idle air control) valve typically located on the throttle body. a quick way to check if its working is to take the tubing off and put your finger over the first hole in the body see if its sucking (should be very strong vacuum pressure) reply with more details on the vehicle and whats going with it.

I'm the original owner of a 2005 vw beetle, less than 11,000 miles, but out of mfg warranty. MIL light has started showing, with a very irregular idle. Any idea what could be causing this?

Best thing to do is if there is an Auto Zone near to you, have them scan the can for the DTC code which should be related to your irregular idle. There to many things that can cause the idle problem you have and with the DTC code, that should explain or at least lead us to the cause of the irregular idle. Auto Zone all so scan free of charge and can give you the step by step instructions to repairing the car to have it run 100% again. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help
