Hello and thanks for using JustAnswer!

Do you have any fault codes that are stored?

What is the long term fuel trim at idle?

It is somewhat common for the timing chains and guides in this engine to stretch and cause a low idle and runs rough.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
There is no codes showing and idk about the fuel
Expert:  Derek Werner replied 4 months ago.

Ok no problem. The next best and easy step to take is clean the throttle body. Remove the intake air tube from the throttle body and clean with some rags and brake clean. Do not spray brake clean directly on the throttle body or on the throttle blade. Just wet the rag with brake clean and clean the deposits from the throttle bore.
