It idles at 600 rpms. There's a little sputter here and there. When I first start the car it stays at 2000 rpms and comes down slow. Also I think that there is a vacuum leak but I can't find it. I've sprayed the whole engine with carb cleaner. I recently replaced: EGR valve, ICT, AIC, fuel filter, spark plugs. I cleaned my throttle body and air filter, MAF sensor, ACT sensor. I don't know what the problem could be or if idling at 600rpm is normal. All help and comments appreciated!

Sounds like you're throwing parts at the problem. If you had a vacuum leak it would idle high, not low. Can you HEAR a vacuum leak? What is your timing set at? Did you reset your base idle?

I thought 600 was idling high? And they were all parts that needed to be changed anyways. I don't know what my timing is set at or how to reset my base idle

And yes I can hear a vacuum leak. It sounds like its coming from the very back of the engine. I think I can hear it from inside the car.

Also if I'm just parked and I rev it up a little, like to 1 or 2 it will drop to about 300 or so and sometimes almost die, then come back at 6. And sometimes it goes back and forth from 600 to 700 simultaneously

Sounds kinda like a vacuum leak, grab a section of tubing and put it in your ear, move it around the bay till you hear it. YOU WILL NOTICE, when i found mine it literally pulled itself onto the leak and created a 'vacuum' in my ear.

Check your pcv valve

Mine idles around 1k for a couple minutes then drops to 600 but sometimes if I am waiting to get out my school parking lot ill be sitting there with my foot on the brake and my engine just revs itself between 400-1000 it just goes up and down for like 30 seconds then says at 600
