Re: wierd idle!!

are you getting any codes? I would try the master reset...remove the negative battery terminal cable and step on the brakes 5-10 times, leave it off for 5 mins and then put it back on the battery...if that doesn't work go to an autozone and have then check to see if there are any codes

Re: wierd idle!!

Pull the codes first...The reset will delete the codes.

A flashing engine light could be a misfire or could be very serious.

Re: wierd idle!!

Always codes first as indicated ^^^ Erratic, almost stalling idle is also one of the symptoms of an EGR Valve heading south. Along with it you will usually get low speed (~30-50 mph) surging, and poor economy and performance.
