Rough idle?

I sometimes get a rough idle when at stop lights and such. I just cleaned out my throttle body and MAF sensor. And that helped, but it still happens sometimes. Its not as bad, though. I was wondering if there was something else i could do that would stop it. Any help appreciated!

Try looking at the IAC (idle air control valve) that should be located right under the throttle body.

Look for carbon deposits and the like. Clean it out as you would the throttle body. And remember to reattatch those vacuum hoses too.
