My car lately seems to be idling extremely low, even in normal tempatures.

At some points it even stalls.

im thinking
a)idle control valve/unit?
b)time for new throttle body?
c)clean throttle control module?

Thanks for any help in advance[:)] [up]

i would try to clean the TB and then do a TBA, and also check for vac leaks

Clean the throttle body then do a throttle body (A)??

throttle body alignment.

i have the same problem with my car...one day i had somebody check my codes, because i had a CEL and it came up with vaccum leaks. then i had my friend who works at a Audi dealership and he check the codes and it was something to do with my throttle body adaption or something along those lines, so i am taking it into the stealership on wed.

does the idle bounce around? if so, your maf might be on its way out or just dirty.

my idle bounces to...but at times its so low that, the battery level lowers down to around 12 amps...and i know thats not good (this is with a new battery as well)

I saw I product that is special for cleaning the maf, because there easy to damage. It was on horsepower tv last weekend. I can't remember the name.
