Idle problem

Started car this afternoon and idle drop really low like it wanted to stall. It didn't stall but remained very low, almost like a sputter. I replaced coil pack and spark plugs and also the egr tube a couple months ago. Could really use help on a diagnosis . Thanks

Had the low idle stall problem with my 2000 SE, found the cable next to the throttle cable back center of engine was out of the mounting bracket. snapped it back in place no issues since. Hope your is just as easy. Good luck!!!

another problem

while driving today , i start to roll from a stop and the car completely bogs down on me and feels like a shuttering from the engine . I would gain enough power to go into second and then clear up in third. It only happens in first and second gear, and only when I am taking off from a complete stop. I replaced plugs, wires, coil pack again trying to figure out whats wrong. It only does it when the car warms up also.
