By fuel issue you meant fuel filter? Since it is under 2,000 rpm's...

I AM SO CONFUSED! especially cause I really don't know much about cars....I will print out your response and see if my brother can check it out for me...first though, I will try the easy approach and clean the IAC if I can find it...I have to try and find a picture of where it is... <sigh>....thanks
IAC is on the bottom of the intake manifold although I don't think that's the culprit.
