            Regarding lollipops... I will have a set within a week or so, once I swap the ones on my car with new ones.

                    So an update for you guys, i unplugged the icv and it goes away. Plug it back in and it starts doing it again... hmm.. so i got carb n choke cleaner and put it in.. cleaned it... and on she went. Started her up again and same thing.. unplug no idle surge plug in.. still bounces.. SMH

                    But the main thing that bugs me is TAKE OFF OIL FILL CAP, AND CAR DIES RIGHT AWAY! UGH!

                      Removing the cap creates a huge vacuum leak so it isn't surprising.

                        I actually forgot to put mine on once on the m20 & it lobe like a drag car, but it was idling all weird. Sounds like he may have a bad ICV...

                        MT325is: Does the idle bounce up and down when you first start the car?

                          Sounds to me like a vacuum leak is letting air in after the TB like the ICV is supposed be doing by itself.

                            Yes it does, and then after i drive it it stops bouncing, its so stupid. And also if i unplug the ICV it stops bouncing, yet the ICV makes a noise when i turn ignition on.. also when i took the ICV out i shook it, and something inside i was moving up n down.. supposed to be like that?

                              Yes, a series of magnets. Get some carb clean and spray around the TB and intake runners, listen for a change in RPM or current idle condition.

                                Clean the icv with some brake cleaner and report back

                                the thing that was shaking was the vlave opening and closing (its normal). but if it is making that noise that easy then it is probably not that dirty
