    rough idle

    ive got a rough idle in my 98 T/A. ive recently got the entire fuel system cleaned so that's not the problem, it runs fine once i get off idle, but at idle it has a sort of lope. last weekend it threw an emissions code. i was wondering if it could be an EGR valve sticking or what it could be?? any ideas?? and how would i clean that? just use carb cleaner or something of that sort?? thanks

    Check maybe the IAC [ idle air control.]

    How many miles? Last sparkplug change? Sparkplug wire fully on? Ignition will show @ idle and top end.
