Great thread, didn't even think about that hose, will have to check it out today. I was thinking more on the lines of the throttle position sensor for the rough idle at a stop(in drive). Like most here, mine would wanna die as I am coming to a stop, it would idle way down(somewhere around 3-400 RPM's and then jump back up to 700 with a surging idle. Like I said earlier, it will be checked out today but if that's not it I'm gonna have to hunt for a TPS for an automatic(most parts listings only show for a manual tranny) which could make for a difficult search without going to the dealer.

Any thoughts on the the TPS(throttle position sensor) would be helpful, and FYI, I work at a parts store and that's why I know about the the TPS listings. Might even have to pull mine off to get a look at the part # on it.

UPDATE: I, like the rest of us in this thread, have a collapsed PCV hose. Soon as I get the part we will see if it cures the problem.
