just noticed this yesterday morning as i pulled up at my girlfriends house, revs dropped to around the 1000 on the dot almost, car was juddering and felt like it was going to stall, then last nite it was even worse, had to rev the tits off it to keep from stalling, it seems to only do it when i first start the engine, and also when going into 1st gear stopping at junctions and pulling up etc, thanks for any ideas and advice

car was fully serviced in April this year, it starts no problem at all, the problem is when slowing for junctions etc, and idling

1st thing check all air pipes mine had a cut in the air pipe causing it to rev really low.

I get this problem with the EGR valve sometimes when it fooks up, the revs just bounce from 1,000 to 400

Best bit is fixing it - all that's required is a good blast up the road
