if it is idling low then try adjusting the idle screw(very simple) if that isn't the problem then i dont know but mine idled very low and it would shut off because it was so low and then i adjusted that and it idles round 1000 RPM's

well mine is idling at 750 were it should be but has a check engine light on but i cant read the codes

if it has an after market intake without the sensor it will do that to
