Hey peeps. Having a idle issue still with my evo 4 :unamused:. Replaced the IACV and that hasn't seemed to fix the problem. Cleaned whole engine bay. Doesn't seem like there any vacum leaks. It will fire up no problem and maintain a regular idle. It's just when it starts to heat up and I begin to drive does it want to stall out when I clutch in and let my foot off the gas.  Just want to bring it into a shop now to find out problem and have it fixed. Can anyone recommend a decent shop to take it to in the city..have been to Mitsubishi and they are complete joke over there.

      maybe after it's warmed up when the fan turns on it's drawing too much current because of too much resistance somewhere and voltage drops.
      causing rpms to drop too low during idle.
      maybe if you check at night or a dark place you can see the dash lights get dim during the rough idle.

        Did you check your spark plug wires/coil packs to see if there are any cracks. They could be tight went cold then once the plastics heats up the cracks could open up and start grounding.

        No other drivability issues? WOT?

          Check your TPS sensor. I've posted about how to test it before. I've had similar problems and it ended up being the TPS. It can also be other things, but it doesn't hurt to check. If you're looking to take it to a shop, I'd recommend Jackson Auto Sport or Speed factor.
