For the past few weeks i've been having an interesting engine problem. Usually when my car idles, the engine will sort of pulsate. My RMP's aren't going up and down, but it sounds like it's reving up and down. I hope that makes sense. It's very noticable and loud as if i was doing it with the gas pedal. I'm hoping i just need a tune up? Any suggestions you could give me before i take it in would be greatly appreciated.

Mine always did that same thing even when i first got it. Let me guess it sounds like you got a racing cam in it when it idles right? Well if you do find out that its something major make sure you let me know.
