Idle RPM boucing from 1000-1400?? HELP!!

I just discovered I have a slight leak in a coolant line going from the engine to the firewall, which I assume means going to the a/c?

So I started the car and let it sit for a couple minutes without the a/c on and the tube leaked on slightly. So I figured Id get it a slight rev to 2500 and make sure nothing crazy happened. Nothing happened with the tube, but my idle started bouncing back and forth from 1000-1400 RPM after. Is this because I am low on coolant?

I turned the car off and let it sit for a few minutes. When I turned it back on the idle was perfect until I touched the gas, then it started to bounce again.

Any ideas?

Check the other thread I commented on how to bleed your system. Or you can take it by a garage if you don't feel confident.
