jmbig is on a distinguished road
idle issues

I have a 99 base model with 138,000 miles. I just recently had timing belt and tensioner, balance shaft belt, cam seals, crank seal, balance shaft seal, water pump, coolant, vtech solenoid gasket/filter.
Ever since i got it back when its idling it fluctuates from 1000 to 1500 RPM and sometimes drops almost to 0 and starts to stall out but comes back to about 1000, but sometimes it does stall out just idling. I was seeing if anyone had any ideas what the problem could be. It seems to stop fluctuating and almost staling out when the engine warms up.

One more thing, when i first picked my car up it wouldnt start because there was water in the distributor cap because he rinsed the engine off but there was a noise when i tried to start it coming from the back by the gas tank. It sounded like 2 loud pounding noises. He used an air gun to dry everything and it started.

I would appreciate any help to try to figure out my idle problem.
Thanks,
Jeff
