Rough idle again! Just fixed it...

I had a dirty FICV about 2 months ago that was slowly causing my car to rough idle, then progressively got worse. Cleaned it, screwed the cap down further, and I haven't had a problem since, till now. It's doing the same exact thing; when I put the car in neutral to roll to a stop, as soon as the rpms drop to 800, it'll fluctuate about twice, and thats all. It does it when it wants to, but it's happening more and more, and I bet soon it'll be constant once again.

I'll take off the FICV again to see if the cap is vibrating outward, causing the leak like before. But I dont want to have to do this every 2 months. Has anyone else had this problem? Would a new FICV solve it completely, as it isn't as worn as my current one? (Speaking in terms of engine vibrations easily edging it out)
