2008 mini cooper s with rough idle to the point of surging at low idle (1K rpm) runs okay above (2k rpm). Have replaced spark plugs, throttle body, and walnut blasted valves. I'm at a loss???

I would be looking for a vacuum leak. Check that none of the hoses have been split or disconnected when you were working on it before.

01 volvo s80 t6 2.8 surging at idle and hard brake pedal. Could a missing or bad gasket on the electronic throttle module cause this problem

The power brake booster runs on engine vacuum to provide the power assist. Since it surges at idle and you mention that hard brake pedal application causes the surge as well, along with the knowledge that the engine was recently replaced, I'd be looking for a vacuum leak somewhere.

If you had the engine installed by a reputable shop, you should take it back to them assuming it started doing this just after the engine was installed. If they have a smoke machine for locating vacuum leaks, that should make the search even easier.

I have a 2002 Volvo s80 t6 and and the codes I got wereP0422 ,P0432,and P2112

p0422 and 432 are for the catalytic converters,
the 2112 is for a stuck throttle start here first and do research on this first. ,
if its drive by wire, meaning it uses electricity to move the butterfly on the throttle body (and not a mechanical cable) then clean out the throttle body with a can of throttle body cleaner and have a buddy hit the gas while you visually confirm its opening and closing properly , it has a motor inside there and it could go bad but its rare, it could have junk inside there keeping it from closing all the way too and you might not be able to see it.

the catalytic converter codes are a bit simpler in my opinion. check the tail pipes while its running for sufficent back pressure,
low pressure coming out the pipes means you have a clogged cat
a sulfer smell or a old bad egg smell is a sign of a bad catalytic converter,.
last but not least get a wrench or similar object and tap the cats and listen for a sound indicating that the material inside has broken free. its hard to explain the sound you will hear but it will be more of a rattling sound.
good luck!

I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee, an automatic, with approximately 100,000 miles on it. In the last 2 weeks it has started hesitating, misfiring, and stalling at low speeds like around 30 mph or slower....

Throttle position sensor is not the only sensor or component involved in Idle, or full speed driving. Remember that on a fuel injected engine AIR is everything. Unless the computer can't send the proper signals to the injectors, fuel ( aside from a bad fuel pump ) is not going to be an issue. Make sure that the other sensors on the throttle body are working fine. Take a look at the throttle body yourself. It's not a hard procedure. Just look at it and run the engine. Is running correctly at all temperatures? As far as the directional signal, you have to trouble shoot that one, but it may not be difficult to find the issue. Check for a loose bulb.

I have a 1990 Mitsubishi eclipse with a 1.8, what is going on is it will not cold start you have to rev the engine to keep it from dieseling out this takes about 15 to 20 mins when it is warmed up it...

The long warm up suggests the thermostat has failed and is stuck open. The hard cold start is commonly caused by a faulty coolant temp sensor or the wiring connector on it. The idle surging can often be fixed by disassembling the throttle body and cleaning out the carbon build up. Be aware that the throttle body idle control box also has some internal gears that strip, also causing surge.
