A dirty throttle body might be the problem. Or check the IAC (Idle air control). More than likely its a dirty throttle body which is not that big of a deal to get it clean. Hopefully its not the IAC. That will run you a couple of hundred dollars.

What causes an engine to not idle properly?

I will talk about fuel injected engines since they have been common on most cars since 1987. Idling problems could be several problems. A dirty idle air control motor , dirty mass airflow sensor or dirty air filter will cause idle problems. Spark plugs that are wore out will cause a cylinder to now fire correctly. A wore or sticking injector will cause idle problems. The most common problem I find as a mechanic for idle problems is a faulty coolant temp sensor. So the three major systems to check are the AIR, FUEL and SPARK .

I don't believe you can change the idle if it is fuel injected, the idle is controlled by the computer, one of the most common problems with low idle is a faulty (IAC) sensor, Idle Air Control. I don't know if you can check these or not but they are available at your local parts store, they usually have a diagram on their computers to show the location of these sensors. Hope this helps.

Idle speed is computer controlled and is not adjustable. Is the speed is incorrect, you have a malfunction with the idle airflow control motor, another sensor, or the computer could need reset. A weak battery can cause the computer to "forget" how to idle. Unhooking the battery for five minutes resets that.

The second most common problem is a bad or fouled spark plug If neither of these is the problem a scan with a correct tool may tell what component has failed .
