Well, I washed my car today real nice and purty and when i got in and started it up, i was just about to pull out when the engine dropped down to about 550 rpm and started chugging...i reved it a little bit and it went away. Later i went to AutoZone just to screw around and got in and it started up fine. Right after that i went to get some pizza and i got in after that and it dropped down to about 480 rpm and was chugging again. Ideas? Thanks.

did you check your vacuum lines?

might be a loose brake booster line

maybe it was thirsty?

clutch may not be engaging all the way, sounds like it is wanting to stall if giving it revs fixes it

(auto) and would that be a constant problem or would it be every now and then? (for future reference on the mach)

if its getting weak and ready to go out you'll get it acting like it doesnt wanna engage/disengage properly. But yeah being an auto run some injector cleaner should fix her up

heh, i'll try to get some more info for you guys in the morning if it's even still doing it...it was really weird though...oh, and i got in a rev competition with a couple mexican guys in a civic with a fart can. we got into our cars at the same time and he revved it once and i lol'd and then i revved for a bit and he revved until the limiter which sounded like it was at 3.5k and i lol'd some more, redlined my car, and drove off...all with stock exhaust on my part by the way...i won
