    For some reason when idling the car is shaking quite a bit have noticed the idles fairly low used to sit on 800rpm now its around 650 any ideas?

    Possible Fuel / Air mix issue

    When did you do a fuel filter change, and injector clean up?

    What car/engine code? idle doesn't drop out of the blue typically... later DBW ECU's will try to keep idle at the preset idle speed (770rpm iirc)... AGU cable throttle will be adjusted at the throttle body... if you are having idling issues then it could be due to a vacuum leak

    Vac leak by the sounds then... does it bounce around a bit? might also be worth doing a throttle body reset...
