2009 Corolla erratic idle I have a 2009 corolla that has been having a throttle dead spot at very light throttle for some time. You can see the rpm vary about 200 I cleaned the throttle body to try to correct this. When I did it got worse. It now idles erratic from 950 (lowest) to 1800 rpm. It shows in the cruise control now too.
