Question Idle sticking

i have a 2000 v6 5 speed its been doing this for a few weeks now the rpms will stick right at 2k. as im shifting through gears if i go over 2k it will drop right to 2k and just stick there when i push in the clutch.

Ive also noticed when im slowing down if not in gear and the idle is sticking when i get to about 15-20mph it starts to ide down and when i come to a complete stop it is completely fine. also if i power the car off and start it back up while coasting it fixes too.

the RPMs dont feel like there dropping fast enough through shifts. there like lagging behind and i find myself slipping the clutch or jerking all the time. ive been thinking its some kind of sensor or maybe my fuel filter but wanted to get some more input first.

Re: Idle sticking

its the idle decay rate some say, my 01 had the same issues, it may be controlable in the ECU

try cleaning the MAF really good that can trigger bad idle issues as well
