Check all vacuum lines and that maf and all hose clamps are tight
Try spraying some starting fluid around engine compartment to help find leak or disconnected line

Re: Idle help!

it looks good now. its not doing that anymore.. however theres still a problem. When I drove it the other day, a coolant line popped off and sprayed my whole engine. steamed up and everything.. Now, after i filled the coolant tank of course, it will Sometimes start up just fine and then other times just turn over! I think the coolant hit a wire or something.. can you help me with that?
