Car problems - Idling leads to engine chugging
HenroidGibberishCold white sand!Registered Userregular
Over the last couple of weeks I've noticed a problem with my car that seems to be getting worse with time. Whenever I have the car stopped the engine chugs. Usually when I'm at a stop, it idles at just under 1k RPMs. And it does for the most part, but then it clicks and the RPMs drop to about 500 RPMs, bouncing barely over and barely under, for a few seconds. Then it clicks again and I'm back to idling normally. The problem doesn't really happen if I'm set to park, it's really subdued in that case. Otherwise, when I'm driving it's totally fine. So does anyone know what could possibly be causing this? I don't run the car low on gas, by the way. Earlier this year, we had the fuel injection and the distributor replaced by the dealer. That's the only work done on the car in any recent time.
Also I'm making a thread of this instead of going to a mechanic or whatever because I'm specifically trying to avoid paying 1) for a diagnosis and 2) a bullshit diagnosis and 3) a bullshit diagnosis and someone going ahead and starting work.
