  7. i was wondering if you got your idle prob fixed....heres a trick to tell ... start up your car in the drive way put the car into drive (while foot on the break) watch the RMP does it drop slowly ? NOW turn the ac on med or high >>>>watch the RMP DOes the RMP rise back up slowly? if so this has nothing to do with motor mounts or tranmision mounts.
