Hi jbloco, few things can casue this problem. Basic things first. Check your ignition componants like , spark plugs, wires,cap,rotor(if applicable). If you car runs good off idle then your Idle air control valve might be bad.

Do you have a check engine light on? First thing I would do is unplug the IAC motor when the engine is warm. If the idle speed doesn't change you have a vacuum leak or a bad IAC motor. If the idle speed goes down you might have a bad TPS or IAC

from standing at the front of the car looking down onto the disributor cap the connector closest to you on the top is no4,the one in the middle is no5. and the one at the back is no3
The connector closest to you on the bottom of the distributor cap is no2, in the middle no1, at the back furthest from you and separated from the other two a little further back is number 6.

1999 pontiac grand am 4 cylinder rough idle, rpms fluxuates


Most likely your throttle position sensor is faulty. You could have a vacuum leak as well. Most probable cause is a bad sensor. Is your check engine light on? Have you checked your engine codes? You can go to autozone.com and register for full free online repair manual.

1990 Ford Probe 2.2 automatic stalls in forward, reverse OK


Sounds like a bad IAC (idle air control valve/sensor) that controls your idle when going from throttle to idle. If bad your idle will act crazy and can cause stalls easily. Pretty sure that's it.

Idle speed problem


I had a similar problem, engine would fluxuate engine idle speed. I had to change the "Throttle Position Sensor." You might have that checked out.
