    Weird idle is back :( PLEASE HELP

    So im lost on this one. Been having an issue during idle car drops from 750rpm to under 500 and lights dim. Also while starting to move in first the car seems to skip slightly as if I just learned to drive stick.The sputter seems to happen from start to about 2500rpms
    Thought it was the iac so I cleaned it, no change.
    Then my front o2 died giving me the cel p0031. Car ran pig rich but my idle was perfect and she no longer seemed to sputter in first.
    Got my denso sensor in today and cleared the cel, but now the idle issue and sputter are back and most noticeable then ever.

    Im lost and dont even know where to begin to look
    Any ideas?

    Check for a vacuum leak and clean the MAF. Without a datalog or some kind of diagnostic info there isn't much to go on.
