Hi Cris,The car fires up & idles great in the cold or start up phase. My problem comes once I've tapped the gas pedal- hunting approx 800-1200 rpm . Even after the car has been driven & warmed up, shut off & re-started it will idle properly. I've searched through most of the related issues & have ck'd hoses for possible vacuum leaks etc, hoping not to have to bother you! Sorry! What I've tried lately when decellerating to stop is to gear down to a crawl where the rpm is down to around 1000, gently cluth & break & it will not hunt. If I'm stopping a little faster, breaking harder & disengaging to neutral at a higher rpm- it will hunt at while stopped. Cpuld it be an idle microswitch issue that's popped up?Thank you for your advice in the past.Best wishes to you & yours in the New Year.Alex
