Mine does this too, but dies every once in while as well. I have to tighten up the idle screw below the TB every few weeks. I'm sure there is a proper way to fix this though.

kinda to the lower left of the MAP on the throttle body. i have mine set around 850 rpms. you can put a dab of honda bond on it so it wont move. that isnt your issue though. have you cleaned your IACV? Done anything to anything with a vac line on it? Messed with anything coolant related?

Mine does the same thing.. It dies a lot in traffic lol. I was stopping at a stop light and my baby turned off lol then I started it again while it was rolling. Now that its getting warmer, it doesn't do it as often.

lol mine only dose a weird idle jump when I first start it and then turn the wheel it jumps about 100-200 rpm and then goes right back to 1500 till it's warmed up all the way and then it sits on 750, the steering wheel thing is still weird to me lol
