Thanks, I guess I'll try soaking it a bit more.

It does have a very annoying tendancy to not drop rpms when I push the clutch in on the highway. When I P&G I have to blip the throttle a little to get it to rev up and drop back down. Normally, if I would clutch in and it just keeps the rpms steady. After a few seconds it slowly idles down. Very annoying! However, the lower the speed, the less it does it. I did notice once I cleaned it the first time I idled down right away. When you just get off the gas is when it kicks into open loop and is using the maf sensor, so this made sense to me.

Just wanted to add something like "life" to the end of the title.

BTW, the car has 80,000 miles on it.
